Patient care philosophy:
"My philosophy comes from many years in school and practice. As physicians, we achieve our skills from a lot of hard work and education. Education is key to what we do in the deliverance of care; not only my knowledge but the education and knowledge I can provide the patient is the ongoing process of care they will receive from me and my staff.

Information and the education of the patient in their care and of their illness plays an integral part of their understanding and their part of the healing process that we all wish to achieve. Patient doctor relationship is one of honesty, information back and forth from patient to doctor and from doctor to patient. This is why the history we take and how well we listen to our patient matter so much. One of my medical school professors told me once that the patient will tell you what is wrong with them. It takes a good listener that is knowledgeable to put together this information with the medical knowledge the doctor has to come up with a diagnosis and a specific individualized care plan just for this individual patient. Even in similar diagnosis any given patient will have a different background and culture. These factors must be considered in coming up with the best treatment plan that works for that patient. One treatment plan may not work, and probably will not, for all patients, so we must tailor what we do to an individual."
