“I believe that excellent medical care requires a combination of up-to-date knowledge and compassionate, individualized patient care. I feel very fortunate to practice in a setting supported by the experience and research power of the University of Washington and I also recognize that excellent care requires physicians who communicate effectively with and educate each patient so that they understand their condition and can be a partner in determining the best treatment plan.”
