“Patients can expect me to be compassionate, caring, and trustworthy. I will truly listen to them and explain their diseases and come up with an evidence-based, individualized treatment plan for best possible outcome. I want them to be comfortable to ask questions, and I will always take the time to discuss their condition and medications thoroughly.”
