Care Philosophy I try to always involve Patients in the decision making process early on. From the beginning of diagnostics through treatment, the patient will be provided choices and the risk:reward of each. This helps communication and well-being of the relationship between Surgeon and Patient. I try to explain in layman's terms as well as providing high-tech media to educate about conditions and surgeries. I feel the Patients will more often than not provide the actual diagnosis by telling me what their symptoms and concerns are…. The most valuable service I can provide to Patients is to LISTEN. The patients information and records are available 24 hours a day through our Patient Portal via our website. We all strive, at Summit Orthopedics, to treat Patients and Families as we would wish to be treated. We appreciate our Patients, and treat them not as a burden, but as a Blessing!
