Philosophy of Care

As experienced as I am in performing foot and ankle surgery I know it is probably new to you. That is why l believe in excellent communication and why I have built an educational model into each visit with you. I want my patients to be informed and active in making treatment decisions. I will meet with you and your family to explain procedures and recommended treatment plans. Diagrams and bone models are frequent aids used to clarify treatment rationales. Time is taken to answer any questions, concerns or worries.
