Philosophy of Care

I believe that one of the most important factors in reaching the correct diagnosis and the right treatment is good communication. I am a good communicator because I am a good listener. I provide my patients with all the information and tools they need to be active in their own care. Medicine changes every day and I make every effort to keep up with the latest science, especially when it comes to prevention and early intervention.
