“My goal is to first understand my patient and his or her needs, and then to implement a treatment plan that will be both effective and efficient for that patient. I treat my patients with compassion and altruism, a genuine concern for their well-being. I endeavor to understand each patient as an individual, to treat them as a unique person and not see them as a disease. Patients should be given the best quality of care with the goal to significantly improve their quality of life.
Patients have the right to be well informed about all treatments available, which helps us make the best decision as a team. I am trained in both traditional and minimally invasive vascular surgery, so I can provide an unbiased opinion about beneficial methods that ultimately ensures each patient has the best possible individual care.
I truly enjoy spending the time to talk with my patients. Getting to know my patients intimately helps us develop a strong bond, makes patients comfortable in asking questions to be fully informed and at ease, and lessens their anxiety before and during a procedure.”
