Expertise. Compassion. Understanding. Great communication. I consider these to be the four keys to a successful doctor-patient relationship, and I am proud to share these attributes with all of my patients. Above all - as a wife, mother, daughter and sister - I understand the healing power of family. Your loved ones are an essential part of your health care team; I welcome and encourage their questions, concerns, observations and input. I devote time to help you and your loved ones understand your situation, your treatment options, your medications, and any special challenges that you may face.
