PHILOSOPHY TOWARD PATIENTS

“I believe a strong doctor-patient relationship is key to producing successful outcomes. This includes compassion, open lines of communication, empathy as well as blending skill, knowledge and experience in a team-based approach with the patient. This is necessary in order to manage complex patient problems, make an accurate diagnosis and select appropriate treatment options. I like to outline the various treatment options in a simple and concise way for patients to understand so that they can make informed decisions regarding treatment. Nothing is more satisfying to me than seeing a positive outcome derived from working together—whether it be a simple or complicated diagnosis.”
