My philosophy is to treat every patient as if they are family/friend. I strive to be a good listener, understand and involve the patient and their families in shared decision making. I spend time with my patients, share medical knowledge and give them opportunities to ask questions. Each individual is different and I believe in providing personalized patient care.
