Practice Philosophy

"I believe that developing a healthy doctor-patient relationship is an integral part of medical practice. My goal is to provide an open platform for discussion and establish a good rapport with my patients. As a patient advocate, I listen, care, and educate. I strongly believe that preventive medicine lays a solid foundation for good health. I ensure that my patients not only receive excellent treatment, but also receive respect and compassion. My reward is seeing my patient’s smile of satisfaction."
