On Patients
"To me, the joy of medicine comes from realizing that each new patient provides me with an opportunity to meet a new and different human being, and to be able to help in some way. This person is someone to listen to, interact with, and, together, come to an agreement as to the most acceptable method by which to arrive at a solution to his or her particular problem."

On Specialty
"Orthopedic surgery allows me to more closely approach two important goals in my life. Firstly, to engage compassionately with other people with regards to medical problems, and secondly, to be able to physically mend things that need fixing, when and if appropriate."

On Virginia Mason
"It is an honor for me to have been accepted among the ranks of the competent and highly trained physicians and health care providers at Virginia Mason. I will do my best to provide the high standard of medical care exemplary of this institution."
