Philosophy:
My philosophy is to give patient satisfaction the highest priority. This is accomplished by providing state-of-the-art care in an excellent facility with exceptional personnel. We emphasize the patient’s comfort in a safe, confidential and compassionate environment.

I focus on efficient and quality medical care for every patient. By thoroughly reviewing a patient's record in advance, I have more time to listen to the patient during the visit. It also helps to avoid unnecessary medical tests. I can then deliver the best care in an unhurried and compassionate manner.

I originally entered the field of medicine because I found its science and practice interesting. However, I have since found that getting to know patients as individuals and taking care of their problems is the most rewarding part of what I do. Gastroenterology is an ideal field for me because it provides a nice blend of technical skills, interesting technology, and one-on-one patient care.
Why The Doctors Clinic:
The Doctor’s Clinic offers comprehensive care to patients from a group of physicians who understand each others’ practice patterns. This allows for efficient care and transfer of medical information between consultants. The result is better patient care.

I was attracted to The Doctors Clinic because of its wonderful location and because it is the perfect sized group. We can exercise more control over quality, and patients do not get lost in the shuffle of a very large system. The group is large enough to provide a good network of primary care physicians as well as specialists.
