My Medical Philosophy
My mother taught me that "it's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice." I try to live by this philosophy in my interactions with patients and staff.
Whenever possible, I try to treat patients with conservative (non-surgical) treatments first. Most conditions I treat are successfully treated without surgery. When surgery is necessary, I will take the time to carefully explain the rationale and expected outcomes of surgery. I try to make myself available at all times should any questions or concerns arise before or after surgery.
My commitment to my patients is to be a respectful, compassionate, skilled surgeon and treat all of my patients the same way I would treat my family.
