Thank you for taking the time to better acquaint yourself with our team. It is our goal to make the often difficult experience of being a neurosurgical patient as non-traumatic and enjoyable as possible. We all go to great lengths to establish a personal rapport with each patient, and guide him or her through the easiest possible diagnosis and treatment of their condition. We appreciate, and in fact, often insist on, collaboration with family and caregivers in the care of our patients. Our patients are cared for utilizing the latest technological advances and in the most comfortable surroundings possible in our office, at the Pasadena CyberKnife Center and at Huntington Memorial Hospital. However, we never let ourselves forget that ultimately any technology is subordinate to our ability to correctly diagnose each patient’s condition and partner with him or her on devising a plan of care we would choose for our own family.
