Philosophy of Care

I believe that open communication, mutual trust and uncompromising compassion are the bedrocks of the patient-physician relationship. Rather than dictate care, treatment should be a dialogue between surgeon and patient where both are equal parties in decision making. Crucial to this is ensuring patients are adequately educated about their treatment options so they can make informed decision about their care. 

Get to Know Me

In my free time, I enjoy all things outdoors including mountain biking, backcountry snowboarding, hiking, trail running, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, camping and road biking. My other hobbies include reading, writing and international travel.
