Patient Care Philosophy

When patients come to see me, I believe in the utmost importance of taking the time to sit down with them and listen closely to their concerns. I strive to tailor treatment plans to the individual, whether that entails a surgical procedure or a more conservative approach. It is my strong belief there is no “one size fits all” approach when it comes to providing the best care for a patient.
