Personal Statement

One on one contact between the doctor and patient is imperative to a successful healing relationship. This includes discussion of multiple factors that affect the patient's health and educating the patient about the illness. Improving the quality of life is the primary goal. I do my best to see patients on time because your time is just as important as mine. I prescribe medications only if absolutely necessary and after a thorough discussion with the patient.
