"Treating every patient the same way does not produce results. My philosophy is to individualize treatment and give personalized care that is as unique as each one of my patients. Keeping an algorithm to patient care is important, but tailoring treatment to the patient is critical.
It is important to me that my patients are well informed and that I answer all of their questions. I am dedicated to listening to my patients and ensuring that I answer all of their questions as well as address all of their concerns."
