Personal Statment

I am proud to be from Kentucky and as a physician at UK HealthCare, I am proud that we take care of patients from all across the state. This “family” connection is very important to me, as I believe it is to the patient experience, as well. My goal is to make sure that patients have care that is thoughtful, timely, and professional.

Expert care will always be provided regardless of whether a problem is straightforward or complex. At times, this requires a collaborative effort with other medical specialties so that the best care is delivered.

Overall, I understand that being a patient is not easy for anyone, including families. My expectation is that I address all concerns, communication is easy, and we are considerate of the patient’s time. I want to make the patient experience as easy as possible at a time when it may not be so easy.

      They explained to me what needed to be done and if this didn't work what would have to be done later. I really liked the way they talked about the pro & cons of the operation.
