My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a primary care physician, I am committed to helping you and all of my patients live fuller, happier and healthier lives. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I make sure every patient receives all of the time and one-on-one attention required for me to respond to his or her unique health needs. Practicing good medicine includes a partnership between doctor and patient. I enjoy coaching patients through health issues and concerns so they fully understand their health and my proposed treatment plans. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments that start on time. No matter what life stage or general health condition you find yourself in, we will work together to formulate a personalized wellness plan that puts you in charge of your health and maximizes quality of life through every chapter of your life.
