Philosophy of Care

I truly appreciate establishing a partnership with both my patients and their families- open communication lines ultimately make for the best patient care. I feel that being educated regarding your condition can make you your own best advocate - you should ask questions about your care so that you can be in charge of your outcomes. Every person and situation is different, so I strive to recommend management plans which are tailored to the best interest of all the parties who are involved.
