Philosophy of Care
My goal is to practice medicine in a compassionate manner, tailored to each patient's specific circumstances. My commitment is to provide the highest level of evidence-based clinical care to cerebrovascular patients including opportunities to participate in ongoing research studies. And, as a physician at a tertiary care academic center, I actively participate in the education and training we offer to medical students, residents and fellows.
