About

Professional Statement

My patients and I are partners in achieving the best health care for them. My job is to be an avid listener, an up to the minute educator, to be there whenever needed, and to be as comforting a presence as possible. Their job is to have discourse wit me, ask questions, and follow the plan if they wish. Being punctual for appointment times is of utmost importance to me, as is explaining things in simple to understand language. Being a physician is more about building trust and personal relationship than science and technology.
