"To provide the best care for my patients, I must practice clinically excellent medicine in a setting that is friendly and fosters open communication. While I work hard to stay on the cutting edge of advances in medicine, I feel that the Doctor-Patient relationship is even more important. By describing the most complex situations in easily understood terms, I am able to involve each patient in their health care decisions."

"Since childhood, I've felt called to be a physician. My conviction was strengthened when, at the age of 18, I lost my father unexpectedly. His passing taught me how to deal with hard times in medicine and made me more approachable, empathetic and commited to open communication. I always take the time to ensure my patients have the knowledge they need to make an informed decision."
