Philosophy of Care
My philosophy is to provide complete and comprehensive care to all of my patients. With care of the elderly, I focus on the goals of improving function and preserving independence. I will work closely and collaboratively with you, your family / personal support, and all members of your medical team to provide holistic care. My personal interests include gardening, solving puzzles, travel, and spending time with my family.
