"My practice philosophy is pretty simple. When a patient walks into the exam room or clinic, I’m going to treat every patient like I would my own family member. If it’s a procedure they need, I would think to myself, ‘Is this something I would do on my own family member?’. If that’s the case, that’s what I’ll recommend."
