My Approach to Care

"Because I work in a high-risk specialty of medicine, I consider communicating with and educating families to be especially important. We may not always agree, but if we can reach a level of mutual trust and confidence, we are more likely to be pleased with the results. I always hope for and work hard to achieve the best possible outcomes for the patients whose care is entrusted to me."
