Practice Philosophy

I believe that the most effective forms of health care involve a coordinated effort between patient and physician. Information and understanding are critical for the patient to be able to make important decisions with regard to their health. A major component of the physicians responsibility is ensuring that the patient has a good understanding of the illness and plan of care. I believe that a patient should have easy access to ask questions and express concerns. As such I make myself readily available utilizing tried and tested means such as phone calls while also embracing technology such as online communications.
