- I firmly believe that every patient should be entitled
to the time required to completely evaluate and discuss a treatment plan
with their physician. No patient should leave my office without a good
understanding of what their diagnosis/problem is, how we will approach
treatment and what options are available. I always consider surgery a last
resort unless non-surgical treatment carries a greater risk of harm. Patients
always make the final decisions on treatment plan based on solid scientific
medical data. Second opinions are encouraged.
