I believe in patient focused, indi­vid­u­al­ized care that involves edu­cat­ing patients on their diag­noses, devel­op­ing an indi­vid­ual treat­ment plan and fos­ter­ing patient sat­is­fac­tion. I encour­age patients to ask ques­tions and under­stand the man­age­ment of their skin can­cers or oth­er skin conditions.
