Philosophy of Care

My approach to practicing medicine is to get to know patients, their individual preferences, and most importantly their overall health goals in order to personalize the care I provide.

I believe the best outcomes are achieved by a strong physicianpatient partnership that integrates evidence based medical practice with patient preference.
