Personal Statement

My hope is that patients see me as a doctor who cares about them, who listens carefully to their concerns, shares my knowledge and expertise, and works with them.  When there does not appear to be a solution to their problems, I want patients to know that I will not give up and will be open to alternative treatments, as long as the benefit appears to outweigh the risk.  And when the situation is difficult or complicated, I am there to help them navigate their way.
