“My greatest professional achievement in my years of practice in Syracuse, New York was establishing close relationships and forming strong bonds with my patients. It was extremely difficult for me to say goodbye to each of them over the last few months. However, I bring the same basic tenets of my practice philosophy with me to RIMG a patient’s well being comes first and communication is the key to success. I believe in being accessible to my patients, and I am ready to care for them and help each of them to the best of my ability.”
