About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

My goal is to surpass your expectations, from your first consultation to your last follow up visit. The entire staff is trained to make your experience a positive one. During the initial consultation I will listen to what you want and learn about your medical history. We have seen and treated people from all backgrounds with all types of defects over the years and have thousands of happy patients. No one in our practice is more important than you. We want each of our patients to feel confident that their comfort and well-being are our utmost priorities before, during and after their procedures. If you choose me as your doctor, you enter into a relationship built on mutual trust and respect. We look forward to seeing you.
