Patient Care Philosophy:
“One primary goal I have every day is to LISTEN to my patients. If you don't take the time get off your laptop, look at your patient and listen to what they are saying, you will miss out on so many looks, gestures, body languages, and even words that can completely change the relationship that is essential to taking care of a patient as a whole. My number one philosophy is stop and LISTEN before you start prescribing patients.”
