“My practice has been built on the premise that each patient is a unique human being and is not defined by their illness. I believe that medicine is a partnership and my role is to help my patients better understand their illness in order to make the best possible decisions to get the best possible outcomes. I do not provide cookie-cutter medical care. I listen, I respect, I care, and I support my patients beyond their medical needs.”
