On Patients
“I see my role as a facilitator and guide for patients as they navigate a complex and often confusing path to wellness. It is my goal to ensure every patient leaves with an understanding of what is wrong and what options are available for treatment. I strive to provide the best evidenced-based and cost-effective care possible.”
