From an early age, I witnessed the profound effect my mother, as a nurse, had on the lives of her patients. Following her example of caring for patients, I decided to go to medical school and specialize in the field of general surgery. I was fellowship trained in minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery and discovered it is not only a graceful and refined surgical style, but it offers many advantages to surgical patients.
As a surgeon, I treat a variety of conditions including hernias, colon cancer and benign colon disease, small bowel disease, gallbladder disease and other common general surgical diseases.
I am passionate about providing quality care and building relationships with my patients. I understand that a warm and caring bedside manner is almost as important as a surgeons competency and skills in the operating room. I will take the time to answer questions, address concerns and make sure patients understand their options.
I also strive to build strong relationships with other physicians, nurses and the patients entire medical team so the patient can be assured he or she is receiving comprehensive, quality care.
