Practice Philosophy
I pride myself on devoting 100% of my attention to my patients in order to understand their concerns and history, make an accurate diagnosis and get to know them. I also believe that compassion and empathy are the cornerstones to medicine. While keeping academically up-to-date in medicine is essential to cutting-edge care, I really enjoy getting to know my patients so that I can help them in the way they need.
