I feel that patient care should involve a team approach that focuses on the patient. I encourage patients to be advocates for themselves and family members and encourage them to ask as many questions as needed. Communication between each patient and me is the foundation upon which a great relationship is formed. I try my best to make patients feel at ease when coming to see me. As we move through the process of the initial visit through the course of treatment, excellent communication continues to be a vital aspect of care.
