“My commitment to my patients and their clinical experience develops from a personal philosophy about healthcare. I believe in shared decision making, ensuring each patient (and their family members) completely understand their condition, each treatment option available to them, and their lifestyle’s influence in which course of action to take for a successful outcome.”
