Care Philosophy

What I enjoy most about my work is that I am given the opportunity every day to help people who are worried or confused about their neurological condition, to connect with them on a personal level, and provide reassurance and clarity about their diagnosis and treatment plan.

I find it gratifying to offer guidance and expertise to physicians who refer their patients for neuromuscular opinion.

At the end of the day, the goal for me is to make sure when patients leave my clinics, they go with positive experiences, that they feel I have answered most if not all of their questions, and more importantly that I am able to build trusting relationships with them and remain engaged in their journey towards good health.
