The most rewarding part of my job is helping relieve suffering. I view my relationship with my patients as a partnership by trying to understand what their questions, concerns and expectations are. I strive to help my patients to feel comfortable and respected during our interactions There is so much information at our fingertips, so it's hard to know what is reliable. Part of my role is to help my patients sort through the good and the bad information in order for them to make the best decision.
I am the father of five children, and enjoy fishing and hiking in my free time.
