Professional Statement
"My goals are always to provide the best and most appropriate care to the individual patient. I believe that this is accomplished by listening and planning with the patient about what is best for that person, even at times when there are only limited options. It is my goal that for every patient, compassionate and comprehensive care can be attained and ultimately leads to increased quality of life by using not only the best in medical science but also our community and the resources that it offers."
