Since I start­ed prac­tic­ing in 1998, I have main­tained that the patient-physi­cian rela­tion­ship should be viewed as a team or part­ner­ship. I believe my role on your care team is as an edu­ca­tor and direc­tor, and I am priv­i­leged to par­tic­i­pate on your team. As a patient, you want to receive infor­ma­tion on your med­ical con­di­tion and your options for treat­ment. I feel strong­ly that you should be involved in the deci­sion-mak­ing process. Uti­liz­ing open com­mu­ni­ca­tion, com­pas­sion and knowl­edge, I strive to pro­vide you with the all the infor­ma­tion you need to feel con­fi­dent with your treat­ment plan. The trust you place in me fuels my pas­sion to deliv­er the best pos­si­ble clin­i­cal out­comes and help you reach your health care goals. Thank you for choos­ing me to par­tic­i­pate as a mem­ber of your care team!
