Patient Care Philosophy
The most important aspect to my work is delivering the best care possible to my patients. This includes evidence-based, personalized medical management, compassion, empathy, patience, and delivery of hope. I believe in treating the person, not the disease. I place a strong emphasis on clear communication with my patients so that there is a clear understanding of the disease process, prognosis, treatment options, and what is to be expected during treatment.
