Practice Philosophy

“I always strive to be in the top 10 percent in everything that I do. That dedication to excellence allowed me to prosper in medical school and get a position in the most competitive surgical specialty. I will do my best to treat you the same as I would treat a member of my own family, and I will use the eye of an artist to work toward your aesthetic goals.”
