Patient Care Philosophy

"My specialty is the care of critically ill surgical patients. Usually, conversations about a patient's progress must be held with family members and others close to the patient - rather than directly with the patient, who may be too ill to communicate. I strive for clear, understandable and frequent conversations with loved ones during a patient's critical illness.
