Philosophy of Care

Empathy is not an occupational hazard for me. The treatment of my patients' diseases may be impersonal, but the education and care of every patient I have is completely personal. Find the courage to change your health and lifestyle, and then find me to do a clinical trial of one. When you can't breathe, nothing else matters.

Clinical Interests
