"I consider it an honor that patients and their parents put their trust in me to care for their hand problems. I also consider them my partners in the care of these problems. I pledge to my patients and their families that I will uphold my end of the partnership by always working to maintain that trust and engaging them throughout the entire hand care process. Plus, it helps that the hand is just about the most amazing contraption in the world and I think its awesome to be able to work with such a wondrous part of the body."
