I wanted to thank everyone for being so nice and friendly to me and my family. I am very excited to be joining the Carrollton area!
My general idea of medicine is a little different from some, I am told. I believe that every patient has the right to make their own decisions about their health care. My job is to advise them, so they have the knowledge to make the best decision for themself. There needs to be a partnership, because I cannot make anyone take a medication or complete a treatment. That has to be from the patient and an agreed upon plan.
For children, my mission is to make the doctor another place that they belong and feel that they matter. When a child feels comfortable, then I know that we are creating a good relationship that healthy choices can be built. We try to be a resource for both parents and children. Whether it is nutrition, immunization, sickness and medication or questions about social pressures, STD’s and risk prevention, we will do our best to be open and provide the most up to date information for each patient.
