My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

A patient is the only one who can make the healthcare decisions that will affect their health and wellness.  These decisions need to be made with a physician partnership that can guide the patient through the multitude of healthcare decisions that will help ensure a longer life and a higher quality of life.
