As your family doctor and trusted health advisor, I believe my role is to provide personalized care to assist you in living longer and better. My goal is to help you live a healthy lifestyle that will allow you to fulfill your purpose in life with vigor.
As a primary care physician practicing highly personalized healthcare, I will be available to you whenever and wherever you need me, whether in the office, acute hospital or at home for the occasional house call. My dedicated MDVIP Patient Navigator will also be able to assist you with any problems you may have. More than just the availability of a “concierge-type” practice, we offer a top-ranked Annual Wellness Program complete with a state-of-the-art annual executive physical examination.
With many years of experience caring for my patients, I have been able to associate with respected medical specialists in the area to assist in your care. While partnering with you, I hope to learn about all those factors that affect your health. I respect my patients’ perspective and they come to appreciate me as a trusted friend and for my wise, professional advice.
Whether my patients complain of fatigue, forgetfulness or other age-related issues, my approach is to search for and treat the root cause, rather than use pharmaceutical agents to only mask symptoms. I enjoy researching the latest in scientifically-based discoveries, therapies and devices that can improve my patients’ health.
As a board-certified Geriatric specialist, my special areas of interest are in longevity research and age-management medicine. This includes: Women’s Health and menopause, Men’s Health, Bio-identical Hormone Replacement, sexual dysfunction, metabolic syndrome and weight loss, diabetes, thyroid optimization, early detection of cardiovascular disease, dementia prevention, sleep disorders, and novel treatments for pain syndromes including arthritis and peripheral neuropathy.
It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.
