"I believe treatment planning works best as a collaborative process involving the patient as well as each care provider. My approach involves listening closely to my patients in order to understand their concerns, and to provide them with information about their medical condition and treatment options in an understandable way. My goal is to provide the best care possible by offering compassion as well as technical expertise to all of my patients."
