Philosophy of Care
“It’s important to me that my patients feel like a partner in their diagnosis and treatment journey. In order for my patients to make an informed decision regarding their care, it’s my honor and privilege to work closely with each one of them, educating them on their condition and their treatment options in these challenging and overwhelming times. I believe in a multidisciplinary approach with cutting-edge technology in treating patients and tailoring therapies on an individual basis to maintain quality of life.”
