Philosophy of Care

I strive to listen carefully, understanding needs and concerns within the context of lifestyle and community. Where evidence-based answers exist, I educate about that evidence. But where there are multiple ways of approaching challenges, I offer options and help families make decisions that work best for them. I am committed to advocating for my patient's physical health and emotional well-being.
