I would like to welcome you to my practice. I believe that the patient/physician relationship is unique. I believe that communicating openly and honestly is crucial to a successful relationship. Getting thoroughly acquainted with new patients, their needs and their expectations is one of my foremost priorities.

During our initial consultation we will discuss your medical history, current lifestyle, concerns and expectations. Various procedures that are most effective in achieving those results will be discussed along with the risks and benefits of the procedures.

My practice over the years has been built on the principles of caring and commitment to my patients, offering the best in latest technology and medications. It is important to me to instill in my patients trust and confidence that I will be their best advocate as well as the assurance that their comfort and well-being will receive my utmost attention — before, during and after their surgery.

I would be happy to answer any questions you may have and look forward to discussing your needs in person. Call us for a consultation.
