About Me

I view my role as a physician to be primarily that of an educator in the lives of my patients. I attempt to provide insight and information to my patients thus enabling them to better understand their unique situation. Through a better understanding of health, disease process, and treatment alternatives the patient and I can develop a plan together that will define expectations and meet their needs.
