Dedicated to Excellence
I hold myself to an extremely high-level of excellence in every aspect of my practice. This includes the care I provide, the equipment that I use, the health and safety protocols that I follow, and the incidental services that I offer. Above all, my aim is to provide each of my patients with an optimal experience.
Experienced Healthcare Provider
I have completed extensive education and clinical training as well as specialized training in my areas of expertise. Driven to constantly improve my knowledge in the area of General Surgery and Bariatric Surgery, I frequently attend educational conferences and professional society meetings to learn about the latest advancements in the field and offer these techniques and technologies to patients.
The Importance of Patient Education
I strongly believe that patient education is an important part of the services I provide. In addition to talking with patients during exams and throughout the course of treatment regimens, I have provided extensive information on the conditions, treatments and procedures relating to General Surgery and Bariatric Surgery.
This clinical information has been written with you -- the patient -- in mind and includes graphical illustrations and photographs. It can be printed in an easy-to-read layout on your home printer. I encourage patients to read about conditions and treatments that affect them and I eagerly invite you to ask questions. Thank you for choosing me to be your health care provider.
