Doctor talking:

Doctor with patient:
I chose the field of breast surgery because it's constantly evolving. It's one of the most rapidly developing sub-specialties in surgery,

Doctor talking:
where there are new innovations, new treatments, new modalities available almost on a month-to-month basis. And it gives you the opportunity to make an impact right away and work with several different fields making sure that the whole patient is taken care of.

Doctor with patient:
What I really enjoy about caring for patients as part of the breast surgery team is the ability to make an impact right away as a surgeon. Not every breast problem needs immediate surgical care, but there's a lot of non-surgical care that we can provide in collaboration

Doctor talking:
with multiple other physicians. Also, you get to be a part of a care team who helps the patient out, not just for days or weeks, but months or years, developing a long lasting relationship with patients and really guiding them back to their optimal state of health.

Breast Health text appears on screen:
As a breast surgeon at Palos Health, we treat a variety of different medical and surgical conditions as part of the care team. It can range from a

Doctor with patient:
number of different benign issues such as inflammation of the breast, infection of the breast, abscess associated with the breast, benign cysts, issues associated with pregnancy, issues associated with postpartum problems that some women may have. And then there's the wide ranging field of breast cancer. There's different kinds of breast cancer, different sizes of breast cancer, different ways to treat patients with breast cancer.

Doctor talking:
So patients see me for a multitude of issues that their primary care physician or another specialty care physician may think it would benefit them to see a breast specialist. Also, high risk cancer patients as well, people with a strong family history should always seen and followed by a breast specialist for regular breast checkups and imaging review.

Philosophy of Care text appears on screen:
My philosophy of care really centers around the patient here at Palos Health. I really try to empower the patient to be part of their

Doctor talking:
medical decision making so that they understand what's going on or what the options are, and they can make the best decision for themselves and their family to get them to their best state of health.

Doctor with patient:
Because, if the patient doesn't have an adequate educational experience, an adequate understanding of what's happening to them, there's no way that they're going to be able to help themselves and allow me to help them.

Doctor talking:
I love to treat patients as is they were members of my own family and being a part of the breast team here at Palos really allows me the opportunity to develop long lasting relationships that allow me to put them at the center of their care.
