My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
My goal as your private doctor is to provide you with highly personalized healthcare that will effectively treat your current health problems and help to prevent new ones from developing. Practicing good medicine includes a partnership between doctor and patient – a partnership based on mutual trust and respect that is earned, not given. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you will be treated as if you are a member of my family in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and I will work with you at each step to assist you with making informed decisions toward achieving your goals. Whether it’s running your first marathon, reducing the use of medication or improving your nutrition, we will work together as a team to help make a happy, healthy future your reality. There are no shortcuts to being healthy, no simple formulas and no "one size fits all" approach when it comes to the well-being of my patients as each of you are wonderfully unique individuals!
With over 17 years of experience practicing in the community, I have relationships with many specialists in the Central Savannah River Area to help with your unique needs and I am affiliated with Aiken Regional Medical Centers. My primary care office is located in Aiken, South Carolina. I am passionate about fitness, exercise and tennis and would welcome the opportunity to exercise with my patients as we reach our health care goals together.
