Philosophy of Care

My goal is to always provide excellent care for my patients. I always try to put myself in the position of a parent with a sick child and only recommend what I would do for my own children. I strongly believe that medical decision-making is a collaboration between the healthcare team, patient and family. I am honored to have the opportunity to be part of patient's healthcare team.
