Patients Seen: Adults

It is an impor­tant part of my prac­tice to pay thought­ful atten­tion to the med­ical, emo­tion­al, and psy­choso­cial aspects of each person’s care – as I often say to trainees work­ing with me, It is impor­tant to treat the whole per­son, not just parts of them.” I take pride in devel­op­ing ongo­ing part­ner­ships with patients and their loved ones as they work through each of these impor­tant aspects together.
