Care Philosophy

I seek to honor and facilitate each patient's own unique healing potential, and I strive to be aware of all aspects that affect healing, whether they are physical, psychological, emotion or spiritual. I take a holistic approach to reconstructive plastic surgery and wound care with an emphasis on incorporating functional medicine and nutritional approach. I love to make heart-to-heart connections and enjoy thinking outside the box to solve clinical problems.
