About Me

I believe that every visit with a patient builds a relationship based on trust and understanding. My job as a physician is not to tell a patient what should be done, but to help guide him or her through a complex problem to provide the best individual care possible. I believe this should be a partnership where I can provide expertise and guidance as we decide together on the best appropriate care.
