My practice philosophy involves listening to patients to provide a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan and establish a strong doctor-patient relationship. I believe educating patients is essential. The more a patient knows about their Rheumatologic problems, the better they are enabled to make informed decisions. I also encourage patients to be active participants in developing the best treatment strategies as advancements in medicine continue to provide increased therapeutic options. I strive to make patient visits as stress free as possible and work to ultimately provide the highest level of patient care.
