Care Philosophy

My goal is to provide individualized, quality patient care to each and every patient. The relationship between a doctor and a patient is crucial to achieving this goal. I work together with my patients and provide them with detailed, fact-based information about their condition or diagnosis as well prognosis and treatment options, including up-to-date standard treatments and novel therapies available through clinical trials. I strive to educate my patients so that we can make shared decisions. All final decisions rest with my patients. I often communicate with my colleagues from the same or different specialties to arrive at the best, individualized diagnostic or treatment solution. I feel that this team-based approach is integral to providing high quality of patient care. I am fortunate to work with and be surrounded by outstanding  healthcare and other professional staff in our clinic where together we can provide physical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual support to our patients in caring and compassionate way.  I look forward to seeing every patient.
