“Patients deserve the full undivided attention of their medical team. I want my patients to know that we are a team, and my staff and I will work together with them and their families to provide individualized, personal medical care — the best modern medicine has to offer.

“We will embark on a journey together that must be founded on mutual trust and respect. My patients should feel comfortable with bringing any concerns or questions to my attention.”
