What do you want prospective patients to understand about you and your style or approach to medicine?


"My approach to medicine has always been to treat every patient as if they were my family member. I treat my patients as I would want my mother, my wife, my daughters, my sister to be treated.

My overall approach to patient care is Patient Centered Medicine. I take my time with every patient so I can listen to their problems and concerns. I try to never make my patient's feel rushed.

I take my time to educate my patients so they can take ownership of their health. I want to empower them to be able to make informed decisions about their healthcare and understand why I am managing them the way I am.

I like having fun and joking with my patients. I strive to create a trusting, non-judgmental environment. I believe that in order to provide the best care possible, there must be open honest communication. I try my  best to foster an environment and relationship that encourages this open communication."
