My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Wellness allows us the opportunity to practice the art of being fully human and to give life your best. The portal to wellness is the doctor-patient relationship. The foundation of that relationship is trust, confidence and partnership between the patient and the doctor, creating an environment for wellness and well-being to thrive and empower. By building a close doctor-patient relationship, I empower my patients to act as advocates for their health and wellness.

The approach, "Tincture of Time" has a new found relevance in this information rich, evidenced-based, high tech/low touch industry we call the Health System. My partnership with MDVIP has enabled me to centerpiece the time quality back into the doctor-patient relationship. I have the time to listen, the time to understand, the time to act and advise, the time to care, the time to comfort, the time to console and the time to visit my patients at the hospital.

My practice focuses on internal medicine and serves communities in Delaware County, including Bryn Mawr, Gladwyne, Ardmore, Devon, St. Davids, Radnor, Berwyn, Wayne, Villanova and Malvern.
