My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...In my practice, patients are my number one priority. I personally make sure that all of their needs are met. The MDVIP model of care allows me to accomplish this goal with ease. I am a firm believer in the statement; excellent leaders lead by example. I will not ask my patients to set goals that I don't already adhere to. Nutrition and exercise are important to me, and I also make it an important part of my patients' lives.
I speak several languages and am very comfortable with cultural diversity/unity of humanity, and I can explain medical jargon in terms that my patients understand. I enjoy the role of being my patients' healthcare "quarterback", and I don't like to lose.
