Philosophy of Care

I chose to be an emergency physician and medical toxicologist because of the acuity, spontaneity, and the variety of medical conditions. It gives me the ability and opportunity to care for any patient at any time regardless of their ability to pay. I use the many years of training to provide my patients with the best possible care and I aim to do it with compassion and empathy. Chances are, you did not choose to be in the emergency department. Let us work together to restore your health.
