“I believe the best way to help patients is to partner WITH them. We all make choices daily that can affect our health in both positive and negative ways. Helping my patients recognize that they are ultimately the ones in control of their own health is an important part of my practice. I firmly believe this empowerment of patients leads to better health outcomes and is rewarding for both the patients and myself as their physician.”
