Meet The Doctor

What can a patient expect when they have you as a doctor?

I will listen to what they have to say. If I need help in providing care for them I will get a competent consultation.

What is the most important factor in a doctor-patient relationship and why?

The most important factor is trust – this goes in both directions. Without trust, there will not be an effective therapeutic relationship.

What hobbies or activities do you enjoy when you're not working?

I enjoy spending time with my family.

What about your line of work do you find the most rewarding and why?

The most rewarding part is making the correct diagnosis and providing the care that helps the patient with their condition. Working with a team of competent, dedicated professionals is also rewarding.
