Meet The Doctor

What can a patient expect when they have you as a doctor?

A patient can expect an affable, caring, knowledgeable physician who will have their interests placed ahead of anything else.

What is the most important factor in a doctor-patient relationship and why?

Trust. The patient should have trust in their doctor or find another one. It is difficult to build a healing relationship if trust is lacking.

What hobbies or activities do you enjoy when you're not working?

I enjoy spending time with my family, relaxing and reading a book.

What about your line of work do you find the most rewarding and why?

Establishing positive relationships with patients. I enjoy long term relationships and getting to know the patient as a person with all the idiosyncrasies that entails.
