My hope as your family physician is that you will feel that you are cared for with all the warmth and concern of family. I rely on wisdom from the ages. I believe that in medicine, prevention and a healthy lifestyle are key. Hippocrates wrote in 400 BC, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Treating the whole person is vital. I have learned from Proverbs that, “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.”
As a board‐certified family physician and educator, I believe in personalized care and, similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments that start on time. Being your MDVIP-affiliated, private doctor, we will work together as a team. My focus is on primary care, but I also have interests in cardiovascular health, preventive medicine and travel medicine. I see patients throughout the Puget Sound region.
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.
