Philosophy of Care

I believe the best care comes when there is a partnership between the physician and the patient. I strive to get to know my patients and their families, and to work together to create a treatment and recovery plan based on the best medicine available and the best interest of the patient.

Patient Ratings and Comments

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

Excellent doctor - easy to understand. Takes time with me to explain procedures and answers all questions. Professional but also very approachable & friendly. Takes the "whole patient" into account during appts.
