I believe in listening to and working with my patients. First, to understand their concerns and healthcare goals, second, to provide guidance and treatment. I am not a doctor who simply tells you what to do. You will learn my opinion, but ultimately, you are in charge of your healthcare decisions. I believe a genuine doctor-patient relationship is based on mutual respect and I see my role is to offer my patients the benefit of my education and experience. As a result, I strive to formulate a treatment plan that best fits each individual's goals and needs.
After all, the best advice or medicine isn’t worth squat if you don’t want to take it.
Why The Doctors Clinic?
Joined The Doctors Clinic
I have treated patients from all backgrounds and locations - from the community clinic in Bremerton to a private practice in Poulsbo - and now continue to deepen my knowledge and appreciation of this region’s extraordinary residents at The Doctors Clinic.
