"My philosophy of care is patient centric, which means focusing on patient safety and outcomes. I like to discuss with my patients their diagnosis and available treatment options, then help them make decisions in a shared decision-making environment. Dignity, respect and compassion guide me in my dealings with patients and their families. I also take pride in my commitment to continually improve quality of care. I work closely with my patients, their families and my professional colleagues to improve patient safety and outcomes."
