My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I believe that primary care should not just be about providing treatment for acute health conditions, but rather providing a comprehensive health plan that is based on the patient and focuses on disease prevention and wellness. I developed this belief as a child when I was given a novel on medical ethics, “The Citadel” by A. J. Cronin, during a hospitalization. Every person has different needs and deserves to optimize their health and well-being. Each patient should be viewed as a whole and not the sum of their diagnoses. My philosophy is that quality health care is comprehensive and should be personalized to patient. MDVIP shares this philosophy.

After 17 years serving Cape Ann, I am pleased to be able to provide this type of care to the community. My staff and I are happy to provide an individualized plan which is superior to the current medical standard of care in the United States. Together, we can reach a higher level of excellence in health care and focus on you to ensure a happier and healthier lifestyle.
