Care Philosophy

My biggest philosophy is making a connection with my patient. I want to ensure they feel heard and that they understand that this is a partnership when making decisions. I do complex procedures, so I’m constantly drawing pictures and diagrams so my patients can understand what the anatomy is and plan will be. Ultimately, collaboration between specialites is imperative and my goal is to be my patient’s advocate to ensure the least invasive, most productive treatment plan is in place. It’s the same care I would expect for any of my family members, because that’s who they are to someone else.
