Philosophy of care

I believe it is crucial not only to show sincerity and dignity to patients in their time of need, but also to understand them holistically. I empower patients to understand the implications of their illness or injury. They are more than a diagnosis or procedure‚ they are human beings with a unique set of values, emotions and experiences‚ and I strive to interact with my patients accordingly.
