Philosophy of Care
“My philosophy of care is best defined as trying to embody the motto "cura personalis," or care of the whole person. I recognize that each individual is a unique person and therefore will have distinct goals for his or her care. The care I provide is deeply rooted in compassion and patience, allowing me to fully understand the goals of my patients.
“I’m always available to collaborate with referring physicians in the care of a patient.”
