Philosophy of Care
“No two patients are alike. In order to individualize care and tailor a unique treatment plan to each individual, I spend as much time as possible with my patients in order to present them with options that are most relevant to their specific diagnosis and treatment goals. Providing patient-centered care means that I am available to my patients before, during, and after the procedure.”
