My practice philosophy is to evaluate each patient individually, and to understand their unique needs and concerns.  I believe it is essential for me to educate my patients regarding their disease process, as well as the rationale behind available treatment options.  Together with each patient I seek to establish a treatment plan which meets their specific needs.
