About Me

I have been in general surgery practice for over 15 years and am committed to providing the highest quality, appropriate surgical care. I understand and respect the stress associated with meeting a surgeon and discussing a surgical procedure. I will carefully explain, in understandable terms, the procedure, recovery and follow up expectations as well as any potential risks. I encourage patients to have a family member or friend attend the meeting, take notes, and even record the conversation to ensure clear communication. Our surgical group has a leading edge reputation for minimally invasive approaches and our office staff is very well trained to assist patients with all aspects of their care.
