As a nurse prac­ti­tion­er, I believe in patient-provider col­lab­o­ra­tion and open com­mu­ni­ca­tion in order to facil­i­tate indi­vid­u­al­ized care that unique­ly meets each patien­t’s needs and health­care goals. My aim is to help patients under­stand their diag­no­sis and treat­ment options in an effort to achieve their high­est state of health.
