We treat every patient with the same compassion and intensity as though they were family. We feel strongly that every patient should be treated with a team approach. This belief extends not only to the members of our own team, but also to the patient’s primary care physician and all appropriate specialists.
We feel that the treatment of each patient should be individualized. Sometimes a routine strategy is best and sometimes resources must be marshaled in an unconventional approach in order to achieve the best results for a patient. We pride ourselves in being able to “think outside the box” if we can help someone by doing so.
