Philosophy Of Care

It is my goal to focus on the whole person, not just the illness, and to individualize care to the needs of each patient. I believe in providing high quality, safe, and compassionate care through open communication and respect for patients’ concerns. My relationship with patients revolves around the idea of a partnership. This includes mutual decision making and working together to achieve common goals. I believe working in collaboration with other health care professionals’ best serves the needs of patients.
