WHAT CAN A PATIENT EXPECT WHEN THEY HAVE YOU AS A DOCTOR?

A patient can expect an affable, caring, knowledgeable physician who will have their interests placed ahead of anything else.

WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR IN A DOCTOR PATIENT RELATIONSHIP AND WHY?

Trust. The patient should have trust in their doctor or find another one. It is difficult to build a healing relationship if trust is lacking.

WHAT HOBBIES OR ACTIVITIES DO YOU ENJOY WHEN YOU’RE NOT WORKING?

I enjoy spending time with my family, relaxing and reading a book.

WHAT ABOUT YOUR LINE OF WORK DO YOU FIND THE MOST REWARDING AND WHY?

Establishing positive relationships with patients. I enjoy long term relationships and getting to know the patient as a person with all the idiosyncrasies that entails.
