“I strongly believe in relationships. I want to spend time with my patients and get to know them, so that when there is a health concern I am able to offer advice that isn’t generic, but personalized. I believe that the best outcomes happen when we are working together and on the same page, especially when it comes to your healthcare and potential treatment options. Every person is unique, and there isn’t only one right answer. I also believe that everything is “figure outable” (I am making this a word). I may not have all the answers right away, but if I don’t, I will help you find them.”
