“I believe every human has the right to be treated with respect, dignity and compassion. Our patients are fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, children; they are not a spreadsheet, a chart with diagnoses, or a medical bill. The care we provide is organized around the individual and our goal across the continuum of care is the continuous improvement of our patient’s health through the practice of the best evidence based and standards of care. Everything we do revolves around helping the people we care for to feel whole.”
