“I am passionate about complete communication with my patients, listening to their concerns and spending extra time to build trust with each patient and family. I work to ensure each patient has a thorough understanding of the disease and potential outcomes of surgical treatment, and I encourage active participation so each patient can take charge of their own health.”
