My Approach to Care
A patient’s surgical problem extends beyond the organ and the illness; it is a life altering event. Therefore, I endeavor to get to know the patient so that we can work together to develop a treatment plan that is consistent with their beliefs, lifestyle and goals for care. I am working to provide a broad range of surgical care in rural Southwest Michigan so that patients can be treated locally rather than transfer to another hospital. In addition, communication with the entire treatment team is vital such that we communicate with our referring providers at every patient encounter.
