Care Philosophy:

I believe that modern health care delivery has eroded the patient-physician relationship. Both parties have contributed; physicians by forgetting their obligation as patient advocate and the patient by allowing the first opinion often to be the final opinion. Our choices are not that limited and I routinely encourage second opinions on all important health care decisions.

My care philosophy is to advocate as a physician and surgeon for the patient as a whole, not just the disease process. By gaining your confidence and trust we can then make the best possible decision for the patient and family; both surgical and non-surgical options have equal bearing on that decision. It is my hope that my manner and experience will best suit your comprehensive medical needs.
