Professional Statement

I am an "old school" physician who puts the PATIENT first, not the protocol. I feel blessed to be entrusted with my patients' care, and to receive their trust. Patients deserve, and get, my full attention. I also think patients and colleagues alike appreciate the fact that I DO have a personality. I see patients in costume, for example, on Halloween!

My goal is simple: alleviate pain and suffering, relieve cosmetic concerns and administer state of the art therapies to those with skin hair and nail disorders.
