“The current healthcare landscape has erected barriers between physicians and their patients which impede and complicate care while creating angst and frustration in everyone. My goal as a physician has been and always will be to do everything in my power to maintain a strong doctor – patient relationship. Medicine is a partnership and I am dedicated to being your advocate and to provide personalized care to each and every one of my patients. I am committed to empowering my patients to stay healthy, but in the event that one should develop an illness I will devote my time and resources to help that individual get the finest, most appropriate care available. This is my responsibility as a physician and my obligation to my patients” according to the doctor’s philosophy and approach to wellness.”
