Philosophy of Care

Dr. Keem believes that thorough examination of the patient and communication with the patient and sometimes his/her family is essential. Each patient has different expectations and risk-tolerance levels for available treatment options. The doctor sees his role as empowering the patient with information, facilitating the decision making process and executing the decision that the patient ultimately makes, for optimal surgical outcome.
