Care Philosophy

As a Physician, I believe: Patients should be treated as I want my family to be treated. Trust. Respect. Patients have a right to be informed of risks, benefits and alternatives to treatment. As a General Surgeon, I believe: It is a privledge to know my patients inside and out, literally. Surgery should be done only when necessary and the benefit outweighs the risk. Tests, whether x-rays or bloodwork, should be done to clarify or improve diagnosis and/or treatment options. I love what I do!
