My philosophy of care focuses on the combination of high quality evidence-based medical decision making, and patient centered care. Effective healthcare necessitates a partnership between a patient and their physician. My goal is to have up-to-date medical knowledge to help you make medical decisions about your care. My attitude towards patient care relies on preventive care, education and counseling. Medical care is never complete unless the patient plays an integral and informed role in their own health, and the best way to achieve this is through shared decision making. As a team we will work together towards your healthier future.
