Practices In: Plainfield
Patients Seen: Adults

I active­ly lis­ten and treat my patients with com­pas­sion and respect to build a trust­ing and last­ing rela­tion­ship. I view the patient-physi­cian rela­tion­ship as a part­ner­ship; my goal is to pro­vide high qual­i­ty and effi­cient care in a com­pas­sion­ate way by edu­cat­ing and involv­ing my patients in the deci­sion mak­ing process. I treat all my patients as if they are my fam­i­ly; giv­ing them the same time, ded­i­ca­tion and commitment.

Novem­ber is Lung Can­cer Aware­ness month. Lung can­cer is the lead­ing cause of can­cer-relat­ed death in the Unit­ed States. How­ev­er, when diag­nosed ear­ly with a low-dose CT scan, lung can­cer is more like­ly to be cur­able, with sur­vival rates jump­ing to near­ly 60 per­cent.
