Care Philosophy

"Many surgical procedures have the ability to instantly have a positive effect in the lives of patients, whether it is repair of a small hernia or removal of a cancerous tumor. Patient education, involvement and understanding are
important to me, and good communication helps ensure that together we are working toward a common goal."
