Care Philosophy

"I believe that education of patients and their families is the first step to recovery and survival. I believe it is imperative to focus on accurate diagnosis and explanation of all available treatment options. I take pride in applying the latest technology for the treatment of benign and malignant breast diseases. There are multiple approaches to any problem and all patients present their own unique set of problems and concerns. Each patient's situation is addressed, and a plan for that individual is devised. This requires communication between the patient and physicians.

I think it is important to stay at the forefront of a field that is constantly changing, and I believe that it is essential to keep myself, and my patients well informed about the newest and best surgical techniques currently available worldwide."
