My approach to treating patients

My patient care philosophy is simple. I treat each patient as if I were caring for my wife and children. Family is exceedingly important to me so you can be assured you will be well cared for. This means surgery will not be recommended unless all non-operative solutions have been explored and exhausted. It also means, if surgery is required, you will receive the most cutting edge/up-to-date technology available to ensure the most optimal outcome.

Empathy is also a trait I value highly. Surgeons are not known for being empathetic and I feel this is quite unfortunate, because we are in the ideal position to support patients as they recover from difficult procedures. In my practice, your questions will be heard and answered promptly. By working together, focused on your goals, we can optimize the patient experience and maximize your health and well being.
