I pride myself on doing a comprehensive, very thorough evaluation of each patient at every visit, whether for a new patient visit, or a follow-up visit. I never want patients to feel that any visit was rushed. I treat patients very aggressively (especially for asthma) and try to eliminate all symptoms so patients can lead as normal a life as possible. Though I am very serious about how I care for my patients, I like to sprinkle in a bit of humor for all to enjoy, whenever appropriate. I also love getting to know my patients and their families from a non-medical standpoint as I develop long term bonds with them over time.
