Each patient presents with their own unique concerns, needs and goals with respect to their surgical care. My philosophy is to provide an individualized approach to each patient, addressing all concerns and questions with compassion, patience and understanding, detailing care plans and surgical procedures in a clear and transparent manner, and offering each patient exceptional, personalized surgical care from diagnosis to postsurgical follow up and beyond. Each patient deserves the best surgical care, and each patient deserves my individualized attention and energy, and I am excited and honored to provide this dedicated service to the patients that I serve and care for.
