My Approach to Care

As a surgeon, I think it's important to build trust early with my patients and their families. I believe that it's my job to not only keep patients informed, but also to guide them to a certain extent, so that they go down the road of surgery and treatment with confidence. Growing up in Nebraska, there is a set of common values, and patients rely on those values as they work through their health problems.
