Patient Care Philosophy

I believe in empowering my patients with knowledge that can help them make important decisions regarding their health. Not all patients are the same and therefore their healthcare should be individualized to meet their needs and expectations. It is my goal to achieve that care for each patient, using evidence-based medicine and state-of-the-art technology.
