Personal Statement

I believe that good health is the most important aspect of quality of life My first priority is to improve the health of my patients so that they can live their lives to the fullest potential. Because each patient is different, it is of the utmost importance to listen carefully to each person's concerns in order to arrive at a unique and specific plan of treatment.  When patients are seen as "people", rather than a collection of concerns and symptoms, we as physicians are better able to treat those patients and develop a genuine relationship with them.
