Philosophy of Care

There are no inappropriate questions. I try to answer or help find answers to all questions patients ask me. I try to help people navigate the systems and the world of modern and complex medical care, while keeping a personal connection, caring and understanding. My best days are when I can point someone in the right direction toward the solution to their illness or problem.
