About this doctor:

In my practice, I try to figure out the patient’s perspective and where the patients are coming from. My philosophy of care stems from trying to make my patients as comfortable as possible. I look for something we may have in common to connect with them. I focus on earning their trust as an experienced physician and allaying their anxieties as much as possible. I try to present my tone in a way that says, “Hey, we’re going to take care of this.”
