Philosophy of care
I try to provide my patients with the most compassionate and competent care that I possibly can. I work collaboratively with each patient to determine their best treatment course.

Why Dr. Davis went into medicine
I think the ability to solve a medical issue and make a positive impact on a patient’s life is truly the most humbling and rewarding experience. It is an honor to move back to Duluth and serve this wonderful community.

Favorite advice to give patients
Always be your greatest advocate. Research the problem at hand, ask questions, and be an active participant, with me, in determining the best treatment course.
