“Being a healthcare provider is a privileged position. Individuals provide a tremendous amount of trust in us and share the most intimate aspects of their lives. As a result, we must treat them with the utmost respect and dignity. Each patient should be treated as a whole; mind, body, spirit, and soul. These can not be separated. This requires good communication from the healthcare provider, a willingness to listen, and a desire to serve” stated the doctor.

A general surgeon performs a wide range of abdominal surgeries for many forms of intestinal and abdominal wall neoplasms, gallbladder disease, gastric and pancreatic disease.
