While innovations in modern medicine have produced a large variety of important advances, managed care has not been one of them. Currently, the insurance companies have created a wedge between there subscribers (patients) and their providers (doctors). I have long felt that this not the best course for either the patients or the physicians. As such, I have continued to provide Surgical care in a traditional fashion giving each and every patient sufficient time for clear understanding of their proposed procedure well in advance of the surgical date. Post operatively, they are also given appointments of sufficient time to allow for thorough description of their procedure, and reasonable indication of what to expect in the future. This is all done while offering the latest surgical techniques of this modern age.
This philosophy allows me to have the flexibility to see current as well as new patients on short notice or as the need arises. My patients know that their care is my primary concern and that the best possible outcome is of paramount importance to me.
