Philosophy Of Care

I believe the cornerstone of excellent and effective medical care is based on the partnerships I have with my patients. Every patient and every clinical scenario is different, and I strive to tailor my approach for each patient. All patients deserve up-to-date and detailed information on their condition, as well as a compassionate approach to their care.

Took 2 months to get an appointment with this specialist, then 6 more weeks to get a spot for the procedure I was initially referred for - too long from referral to procedure.
