As a pri­ma­ry care physi­cian, the rela­tion­ship with my patients is one of my main pri­or­i­ties. I focus on build­ing trust so my patients are com­fort­able shar­ing their con­cerns with me to allow me to prop­er­ly care for them. I believe that it is best for patients to tru­ly under­stand their med­ical con­di­tions so we are able to work togeth­er to devel­op a com­pre­hen­sive care plan.
