Approach to treating patients: Our purpose is to handle each and every patient visit with care and proficiency. It is also highly important to us that our Doctor/Patient relationship is open and honest. It is our responsibility to make sure patients are well informed about their conditions and the multiple choices of treatment. Our professional staff will also provide you with patient education materials that give you added appreciation of your condition and treatment options.
