“I believe a patient-centered approach is essential to quality care. I enjoy getting to know my patients and understanding their specific problem. I believe it is critical to explore both nonsurgical and surgical options in order to find the right treatment. Ultimately, seeing my patients get back to doing the things they love drives my passion for hand surgery.”
