I believe in patient-cen­tered” med­i­cine. My goal is to pro­vide an out­stand­ing endocrinol­o­gy ser­vice at which each and every patient is viewed as a unique indi­vid­ual whose treat­ment should revolve around his or her unique health­care needs and per­son­al­ized goals. Such ser­vice, when com­bined with med­ical deci­sions based on the patient’s pref­er­ences and up-to-date sci­en­tif­ic research, pro­vides the great­est outcomes.

"The appointment with this new medical professional was a refreshing change in approach. It was the third time seeking help for my issue, and this doctor took the time to truly listen without judgment. I felt understood for the first time. Rather than just treating me as another case, this provider viewed me as an individual human being deserving of compassionate care. We had an open discussion about my unique experiences and what had or hadn't worked well previously with medications. The doctor understood this is a process that requires figuring out the best personalized solution. Together we will continue exploring treatment options to find what works best for my specific situation and goals. I particularly appreciated not feeling like just a number, but a whole person. Overall, meeting with this provider gave me hope that by working as a collaborative team, we can make progress toward improved health and well-being. The caring, patient-centered manner in which I was treated left me feeling heard and empowered in my own care."

"I appreciated his concern about the distance I was driving to his Clinic and his explanation of why I needed to meet with an endocrinologist close to my home. I took this appointment because it was the earliest one available - he answered all of my questions and gave me confidence to wait a bit longer for an appointment closer to home."

"Last appointment, seemed a little rushed. First time to see this DR and I just got him my previous records so he didn't have time to evaluate them. Really didn't get to talk much about how I felt."

"The provider gave me a new prescription. However, I only found out the exact reason/condition for doing so by reading the 'Notes' in the After Visit Summary. I completely understand, but I wish provider had explicitly told me."
