About Me

I use my training and experience to formulate surgical approaches tailored specifically for each patient. All patients are unique and their surgical plan should be as well. I also take a holistic approach while devising a treatment plan. I look at the whole patient and everything that is going on with them in order to understand what treatment option will work the best. An open dialogue with my patients allows us to choose a plan that will provide the best outcomes.

Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any co-payments, co–insurances, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.
