My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
My passion for taking care of the whole patient has become even stronger as I watch healthcare in the United States become more depersonalized. I have heard, and personally witnessed, stories of patients suffering because they do not have a knowledgeable advocate in their corner and this has moved me to the point of action. By partnering with MDVIP, I will provide a personalized healthcare experience where you are the center of attention. Not only will your needs be addressed as they arise through unhurried, longer appointments, but we will be able to focus on preventive medicine and begin to prepare for issues before they arise.
My father has been a practicing family physician for over 43 years, and I have witnessed first-hand the power of a strong doctor-patient relationship. I remember the days when he made house calls and was able to walk into a patient’s room and know something was wrong before the patient even began to speak. This is the relationship I strive to create with my patients. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice the doctor-patient relationship is the focus. By combining this sacred relationship with strong evidence based medicine, as well as modern technology, we will create an atmosphere of teamwork. My patients are not just a number but an active partner in their healthcare. Together, I hope to enable you to achieve and exceed healthcare goals you may never have thought possible.
As our healthcare system becomes more fragmented and complicated, I look forward to partnering with you and your family as your personal physician. As a team we will champion your health and provide you an experience with healthcare the way it was always intended to be.
