Treatment Philosophy

I believe it is important to work closely with a team of physicians, nurses, pharmacists and social workers to coordinate the best possible care for our patients and to promote safe transitions from the hospital to the outpatient setting. I place high importance on clear and compassionate communication. Patients and their family members should feel encouraged to ask questions and ensure they understand the plan of care. I strive to always advocate strongly for my patients’ best interests, to understand their goals, and to support them through whatever challenges they may be facing.
