Dr. Gange’s Philosophy: “I enjoy and take great pride in being able to help others. I strive to treat people the way I would want to be treated and receive deep gratification from my involvement in the physician-patient relationship. I like being on the cutting edge, and that we actively participate in clinical research; this often allows me an opportunity to offer the least invasive and best options to patients. And I really enjoy teaching, whether one-on-one in the office or to an audience of my peers.”
