My care philosophy is to treat all patients and families as if they were my family.
I chose to go into medicine because it gave me the ability to help people and make an impact in their lives, while learning the technical intricacies of surgery. When I’m not caring for patients, I enjoy mountaineering, skiing, fly fishing and cycling.
