“Maintaining the patient’s quality of life is very important to me. The ability to comfortably eat, smile, speak, and breathe are essential to living a healthy life, and having our health allows us to apply our full attention to other important aspects of life. I am looking forward to creating a personalized treatment plan based on my patients’ needs and goals.” – Dr. John Jurkas
