"I believe that success in medicine can only be achieved through a partnership between patient and physician. I bring my knowledge, experience, and skills to the table but the patient’s faith, hope, and desires also play an important role.
My mother and wife are both nurses. They have taught me by example that people don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care. Serving my patients is what makes my profession enjoyable. No one comes to clinic or the operating room because they want to, but helping them through this difficult phase of life is a unique privilege. "
