Philosophy of Care: We practice medicine focusing on the "Golden Rule". We treat patients as we would like to be treated. We enjoy bringing our personalities into the care of our patients, which generally means we can make you smile by injecting humor into your care. We are all well trained. We are all quite busy and have built up a practice of over 18,000 patients. We perform about 500 major surgeries each year and countless minor procedures in the office and at the hospital. We have extensive experience in laparoscopic surgery, but are still capable of performing the old-fashioned traditional surgery. In short, our patients come first and they will tell you so. We cannot begin to count the number of times we have had patients remark that no other doctor has ever called them after surgery to see how they are doing or sat at their bedside just to talk with them. These are just some of the things we do that set us apart as physicians and surgeons.
