About Me
About Me

Practice Philosophy

My practice philosophy is to treat every patient with the same respect, thoughtfulness, and commitment that I would want for myself or a family member. I believe every patient has unique aspects to their case and, therefore, every treatment plan must be carefully, and thoroughly, individualized. I have a zero threshold to consult colleagues, or marshal any available resources, if I believe it will contribute to the care of my patients.

I view my career as a calling, not a job, and I cherish, appreciate, and respect the sacred trust patients place in me when I have the privilege of being their surgeon.
