My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

For me, the practice of medicine is a calling and a privilege. My patients are family. My goal is that each day I will try to improve the lives of my patients by crafting a personalized healthcare plan for wellness and prevention as well as the treatment of disease, when necessary, while providing a high level of patient experience. 

In transforming to an MDVIP-affiliated practice, similar to a concierge style practice, I will be able to continue to deliver high quality care in a more patient-centered environment, less influenced by institutionalized and government directed interference. As a board certified internal medicine physician with extensive experience in management of chronic illness such as congestive heart failure, women’s health issues, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, dementia and geriatrics, I have come to appreciate the focus on prevention and wellness. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, more time and more resources will be available to me to accomplish this goal. I will be better able to serve my patient community allowing me to provide medical care at the highest standard.

About the Practice/Practice News

Change is significantly affecting the healthcare landscape with ongoing implications for doctors and patients. It’s nearly impossible to navigate such a complex system alone, but with me as your ally, we can get through it together and keep you on the path to optimal health.

The best healthcare starts with a physician partner who truly knows you, your needs and your goals. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you come first. Third parties and red tape will not interfere with my ability to care for you the way you deserve.
