My aim is to improve the outreach of AdventHealth's colorectal care specifically with regards to minimally invasive/robotic surgery beyond downtown Orlando. I am tapping into a relatively fresh market with little colorectal specific care prior to my employment. In doing so I also am aiming to improve the robotic education of the next generation of colorectal surgeons.
- Care Philosophy
My philosophy is to manage patients and their expectations in an open and collaborative way. I want my patients to feel as though I care about them as I would a member of my own family and don't just look at them as a disease process.
