I hold two guiding principles in my surgical practice. First, I am treating a human being. Second, I take into account the whole person I am treating. Let me explain a little more.
Treating you is a privilege I do not take lightly. You are entrusting me to care for you, and I will do so with the highest degree of respect and dignity. I look at each person as more than just a case, a disease, a problem or just a billing opportunity. I treat people as I would want to be treated if I were the patient.
Over the years of my practice I have come to appreciate the fact that we human beings are complex creatures. Not just the complexity of the human body, but the dynamic interaction of emotions, thoughts, spirituality, cultures, attitudes and perspectives on life. All these factors influence our health as well as how we handle the challenge of having an operation. I am mindful of these factors as I work with you through the surgical process, all to help create the best possible outcome.
