Philosophy of care

I strive to care for each patient as I would like others to care for my own family. I hope to ease the stress of your trauma, treat your injuries, and work to help return you to your life or new normal. I understand that trauma affects not only you, the patient, but those close to you. I aim to ease your loved ones’ worry by keeping them informed and working to address their concerns.

Why I entered medicine

I had surgery as a young child and was in awe of the physicians and surgeons that cared for me. I was amazed that they were able to fix my ailment and I wanted to provide the same for other people in the future.
