Plastic Surgery Center - Tosa Health Center

Growing up in a family of nurses, I learned early-on the importance of good bedside manner and clear communication. Each patient is unique, and the most successful physicians are those that listen first and talk second. I start each day remembering that it is a privilege to take care of people in their most vulnerable moments.
