Patients First

“Patient First” is the attitude I developed during my residency. My hospital and training program promoted this philosophy and I agree with it. “Patient First” means you are my priority. I will listen, be compassionate and non-judgmental while anticipating your needs. My goal is to arrive a the correct diagnosis, start the appropriate treatment and manage your condition while helping you feel comfortable and informed along the way.
