In the interim, let's all do our best to limit unnecessary social contact, and keep safe. Remember, we're all in this together.


Continuing Education ...

... we are filled with wonder for what we do, and are addicted to discovery ... we pursue every opportunity for education, actively seeking out the best, understanding that knowledge is power and the currency for better patient care.


Honest and Open Communication ...

... truth is the only way to go, and our thoughts, words, and actions will take this path with everyone, every time, in the most loving way possible.

A Servant's Heart ...

... means that we treat our patients as if we were the patient, for no other reason than it is the right thing to do, intentionally setting aside personal agendas, making decisions based upon best care only, and accepting any economic benefits that follow as secondary.


The Best in Services and Products ...

... means that our recommendations to patients are always governed by "the best for the least" principle, recognizing that the most expensive option is not necessarily the best, but the cheapest is very likely the worst, maximizing the value equation to enhance our patients' quality of life.
