About Me

While my focus is on the skin and skin cancer surgery, I believe it’s important to learn about a patient’s entire health history in order to provide the best care. To me, it’s vital to get to know each patient as an individual, to learn their story so we can make the best decision about their treatment and care together.

I go over all treatment options with patients so they’re fully informed when making a decision, and strive to be as open and available as possible. I want patients to ask questions during the visit and if they think of a question after our visit, I encourage them to call so we can speak again.

My goal with each patient is to create an open dialogue so I can understand what is important to them as they navigate their diagnosis, treatment and recovery. I encourage patients to be involved in their care, so in addition to verbal and written instructions, we have educational videos to help patients understand what to expect before, during, and after surgery.

Overall, my care of patients goes beyond the clinical; I always strive to establish a relationship with each one as a whole person so I understand their story, their concerns, and their wishes.
