Most likely you were referred to us by your physician or a friend. We realize you have choices when selecting a surgeon, and we thank you for choosing us. The idea of surgery may cause apprehension; but please don’t assume just because you contact us that surgery is necessary. Whether it is a minor or major problem, we will explore all treatment options with you. If there is any way to avoid surgery with a lifestyle change or medications, we will certainly discuss that possibility. Our philosophy is to work in conjunction with your primary care physician to devise the most appropriate treatment for your specific condition and preferences.
Your office consultation will be conducted in a warm and caring atmosphere from your greeting with our receptionist, to our nursing staff assessment, to your time with us. The goal of our office is to put you at ease. Once we have completed your evaluation, we will review our findings and recommendations with you so that you can make an informed health care decision. If your problem does warrant surgery, we want you to know that we are specialists. We strive to remain current on all of the latest developments in our field so that we can offer you the best possible care. We have pursued advanced training in the field of surgery, are active in professional organizations and attend continuing education classes. Once the decision for surgery is made, you will be scheduled for the first available date. The sooner you receive your surgery, the sooner you can recuperate and return to your normal life.
Before the date of your procedure, you and your family will have the opportunity to get to know one of us. We will explain exactly what your problem is, and how we can work together to correct it. Also, we may give you an educational brochure which gives you a sneak preview of what to expect. It is our philosophy that the more you know, the more active you can participate in the healing process. For most people, surgery is an experience that happens only once or twice in a lifetime. It calls for the choice of a surgeon who is eminently qualified and genuinely cares. We are friendly, approachable, and easy to talk to, plus we care about you. We want to build a lifetime relationship with our patients based on trust, and we are committed to treating each person with Christian love and concern. It is our goal that when you leave our office, that you will feel confident about every aspect of your care and happy that you chose us as your surgeons.
