The relationship between a physician and patient is one in which we work together to accomplish a desired goal. My principle role is to provide the patient with accurate information about their condition or diagnosis. That usually includes defining options of treatment that are available in managing a particular condition. I give my best effort to apply the latest evidence-based guidelines using my skills, experience, judgment, and advanced diagnostic technologies to each circumstance or situation.
