I look at the entire patient, not just the part of the patient that's the focus of my surgery. I believe it's important for a surgical specialist to not just be a surgeon, but a clinician as well.

Need help? Finding the right providers for you and your family is an important step in ensuring your best health. If you need help finding a provider, please call us at 1-977-6000-FHN (1-877-600-0346), ext. 965.

Many of our specialty care offices require a referral from primary care for your initial visit, so if you're already an FHN patient you may need to contact your primary care provider for more information. If you're new to FHN or don't have a primary care provider, call the number above and you'll have a primary care appointment before you hang up the phone!* Thank you for choosing FHN!
