He works collaboratively with his patients and their other health care providers in a team approach to design the most appropriate care for them. His goal is to help patients achieve their health and wellness goals in the most efficient and enjoyable way possible. This approach to patient care is the same approach he takes with students, helping to guide them towards success and a rich academic experience.
