Philosophy of care
I find it important that patients understand and are well educated on their disease process, and then to collaboratively work with them to choose an appropriate course of action, whether it involves surgery or not.

Why Dr. Larson went into medicine
I was drawn to medicine at a young age as I observed my mom, a nurse, care for her patients and those around us. As I learned more about it, I was intrigued by the complexity of the human body and the amazing ways we can intervene to improve our health.

Favorite advice to give patients
You can do it and we are here to support you throughout the process!

I enjoy running, camping, all the skiing, and exploring new hikes and North Shore adventures with my wife and our two young children.
