Philosophy of Care: My goal is first to understand my patient and his or her needs and then to implement a treatment plan that will be both effective and efficient for that individual. I treat my patients with compassion and altruism. I aim to understand each patient as an individual and to treat them as a person and not as a disease. Patients should be given the best quality of care with the goal to significantly improve their quality of life. I provide both traditional and minimally invasive vascular surgery. Having had the privilege to be trained in both modalities allows me to offer the best option for my patients. Patients have the right to be well informed about all modalities available to them. I truly enjoy sitting and talking with my patients. I believe that getting to know your patients intimately allows you to develop a strong bond which therefore helps lessen the anxiety that any individual would have when undergoing a procedure.
