  • Ratings & Comments from Patients
    To ensure our ratings come only from verified patients, we work with Press Ganey, a third-party organization. Press Ganey sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVHN’s behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor’s or advanced practice clinician’s communication skills. Read more about our survey.

Personal
  • Philosophy of Care

    My philosophy of care is to provide the best care that I possibly can. I believe in engaging the patient and encouraging them to be equally involved to achieve the best possible outcome.

  • Why I Entered Medicine

    My initial goal in life was to help people. I began my career as a pharmacist and discovered that I could be of even greater service by becoming a physician and surgeon.

  • Community & Charity Involvement

    I donate to worthy causes locally, nationally and internationally throughout the year. I believe that it is important to help the disadvantaged whenever possible.

  • Personal Interests

    When I am not at work, I like spending quality time with my family and strive to instill the desire to achieve a greater good in my children. I have an interest in advances in technology and like to read journals and articles pertaining to this topic.
