Philosophy Of Care

I believe that a strong patient-physician relationship is at the heart of good health care. One of the reasons I went into primary care is for the open and long-term rapport that is built on mutual respect and trust while providing compassionate care. In addition to treating ailments, I also like to take a preventive approach to medicine, view patients as a whole and work for the promotion of health.
