About Me and Care Philosophy : Establishing clear concise care plans with patients is my philosophy. As a general surgeon, I started off as a Hmong interpreter. I've come full circle to understand that a strong foundation of communication between the patient and caregiver lessens patient anxiety, stress, and fear of surgery.
