"I believe all patients deserve respect, to be listened closely to, and have their concerns addressed directly and efficiently. Education is paramount, curbing unhealthy behaviors and encouraging a healthful lifestyle is my primary goal. I believe interventions such as medications, tests, and other treatments should be used sparingly and as truly needed."
