"Η καλύτερη φιλοφρόνηση που λαμβάνω είναι όταν ασθενείς μου συνιστούν έναν από τους συγγενείς ή φίλους τους. Η εμπιστοσύνη του ασθενή μου είναι υψίστης σημασίας για μένα. Η κύρια μου προσέγγιση για να σας βοηθησω στο πρόβλημα σας είναι να σας διατηρήσω καλά ενημερωμένο." 

"Είναι καθηκον μου να σας βοηθήσω να καταλάβετε τις συμβουλες που σας δινω. Όταν θα έρθετε να με δειτε σαν τον ορθοπεδικο σας χειρουργό, η χειρουργική δεν είναι η μόνη επιλογή σας. Μερικές φορές μέσω της αποκατάστασης με φυσιοθεραπεια και διαθέσιμων συνταγών, το προβλημα σας μπορεί να θεραπευθεί. Εάν χρειαζεστε χειρουργική θεραπεια, θα σας ενημερώσω, γιατί απαιτείται η χειρουργική επεμβαση, τι θα γίνει με τη χειρουργική επεμβαση και τι πρέπει να προσδοκειτε ως ενδεχόμενο αποτέλεσμα μετά την εγχείρηση."

Mini Blog:

"Όταν οι άνθρωποι επισκέπτονται ενα ορθοπεδικο χειρουργό, η πρώτη τους σκέψη είναι "Ω, εγώ δεν θέλω (ή δεν χρειαζομαι) να χειρουργηθω." Μπορεί να εχουν δικιο. Χειρουργική θεραπεια είναι μία μόνο από τις πολλές επιλογές θεραπείας. Πολλοί από τους ασθενείς μου δεν χρειαζονται να χειρουργηθουν - μπορουν να θεραπευτουν με αλλα μεσα. Εάν το προβλημα μπορεί να θεραπευτει χωρίς χειρουργική, τοτε αυτο θα γινει. Θα ενημερώσω τους ασθενείς μου για όλες τις επιλογές θεραπείας που έχουν για το συγκεγκριμενο προβλημα , και ποια είναι τα πλεονεκτήματα και τα μειονεκτήματα της κάθε επιλογής. Υπάρχουν πολλες και πολύτιμες πληροφορίες για ολες τις ασθενειες, και μπορουν να απαντουν πολλές ερωτήσεις που μπορεί να έχει ένας ασθενής ή βοήθα για να κατευνάσει ορισμένες ανησυχίες που μπορεί να έχει."
