Care Philosophy

For me, as a physician, I have two passions in life, My family and my work. I am honored to care for the patients and their families who select me as their physician. To me Life is such a gift and the distress created by disability interferes with the enjoyment of that gift as well as inhibiting the expression of that gift in the patients' world. Together we work to restore the balance.
