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.

The doctor seems very nice and knowledgeable. He apologized for the late start. He was thorough in his explanation of the procedure. I just wish that he had told me that I had a very long wait ahead of me. I left with the impression that I would get a routine colonoscopy in a few weeks not a few months.
