​My personal philosophy of primary care is to provide evidence-based holistic care in a compassionate, respectful, culturally sensitive environment that promotes therapeutic discussion of mutual healthcare goals in individuals and their families. I’ve seen the impact of acknowledgment of cultural differences and the inclusion of the individual and family when developing healthcare goals. I strive to establish an open, respectful relationship and to develop individualized treatment plans for those with wounds, ostomies, or continence disorders.
