"I believe in helping patients to be in charge of their care. I see the healing process as a partnership and value my patients' role in this partnership just as highly as mine. Another key value I hold is transparency. I believe that my patients deserve simple, clear, easy to understand explanations of their conditions and treatment options available to them."
