Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

"My goal is to develop care plans that are both individualized and reflect current medical science. An important aspect of my role is educating patients about their current medical conditions and how they can remain healthy in the future. I believe that it is vital that my guidance accounts for the whole person-their social situation, personal preferences and beliefs and the potential complex interplay between their medications and chronic medical conditions."
