"Each day, I am inspired to bring the level of attention and expertise to my patients that I would want my loved ones to get from their doctors. For me this means a dedication to top surgical quality and medical knowledge in order to deliver outstanding patient care. It also means careful listening and consideration, analyzing the patient’s situation from all angles. Every patient is different and has unique needs, and I seek to help each person in the way that is best for them." — Jennifer Hrabe
