"My philosophy of care centers around the idea that a physician-patient relationship is built on trust, communication, and compassion. I strive to practice inclusive medicine, in which everyone feels welcomed and heard. Inclusivity is something I continually work towards and am ever conscientious of. Being considerate of people's needs is something that's deeply rooted in medical care; as clinicians, we must be conscious of being empathetic and compassionate, as these are foundational tenets of inclusive medicine."
