Philosophy of Care

My goal is to provide my patients with an aesthetic and naturally balanced outcome through advanced and reliable surgical techniques. I believe that safety is paramount to any surgical procedure and is achieved through the highest of standards and medical expertise. My practice is dedicated exclusively to surgery of the face as well as providing an environment of compassionate and personalized patient care.

Personal Interests

Prior to my current profession I was an art scholar and obtained a bachelor’s degree in painting. My interests in art continue with medical illustration and graphic design. As much as I have enjoyed exhibiting and publishing my work, I can easily say that my most enjoyable moments surround my wife and daughters.
