“I specialize in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of adults with diseases of the heart and lungs.Surgery is a big event in every patient’s life. It can be difficult emotionally as well as physically. When you decide to trust me with your surgery, we become partners in your care. I not only offer you the surgery you need but I want to understand what brought your health to this crisis and how I can help you on the road to recovery.
“I consider your family members and loved ones part of our team. I believe in preparing everyone so each can do his or her part to help you recover. I want you to succeed, and know that your success is our success.
“As my patient, you will always have direct access to me. If you have a question or concern, I want to hear about it. Whether I end up just reassuring you that what you are feeling is normal or if there is a problem we need to deal with, it is always best to take care of it as soon as possible. I don’t want you to worry – that’s my job as your surgeon. I only ask that you follow through with our treatment plan so that you can have a speedy recovery.”
