As a medical doctor, it is my duty to evaluate the situation with as much data as I can gather and as much expertise as I have and as much experience as I have to determine whether or not the wish of the patient is medically justified. My practice exists to provide compassionate, state-of-the-art care for patients with neurological disorders that are amenable to surgical intervention. We will stay ahead of the standards of care worldwide in all aspects of neurosurgery, and make our patients and their loved ones feel like they are heard, understood, and cared for. To that end, I as a surgeon will continue to stay on the cutting edge of modern surgical and diagnostic techniques, using a balance of good training, technology and innovation to offer my patients the best possible care. We will, as a corporation, provide customer service that makes patients feel thankful they have chosen us. Our employees will be continually reminded that our patients are our livelihood and that we owe it to them to care for them as if they were our own family members. Auburn Spine and Neurosurgery will be a corporation that sets standards, not one that strives to meet them. We will contribute to our community professionally, socially, and philanthropically. Finally, we will be transparently a practice that reflects the ideals of Christ in our business and personal dealings with people and honors those ideals in everything we do.
