My areas of focus

Patients should expect to interact with a physician with clinical experience that will listen to them, offer a comprehensive diagnostic and management plan agreed upon with the patient in shared-decision making, and supportive during follow-up. To foster the physician-patient relationship and positive outcomes, the patient is also expected to be proactive in keeping up with appointments and the plan established.
