Philosophy of Care: I strive to explain in simple terms what the findings have been and how to proceed with the management of the condition(s) for the best possible outcome. I welcome and encourage open and ongoing dialogue with my patients, their families, support networks and medical team. My patients have, over the years, continually educated me to be a better person and physician by showing me the importance of empathy, compassion and including them in shared decision making.
