My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a board-certified family physician, my passion is to provide highly personalized care to each of my patients. My desire is to help all of my patients (regardless of age or current state of health) to optimize their physical and mental well-being, happiness, longevity and productivity. I spend a lot of time with my patients in order to understand how their stressors, nutrition, environment, relationships, activity levels and more affect their health. It is my ability to listen and my desire to truly understand the root cause of a problem that led me to join the MDVIP family. The MDVIP model of healthcare allows for the optimization of the doctor/patient relationship through longer visits, more direct contact with the provider, and shorter wait times for appointments. Similar to conveniences often associated with concierge medicine practices, I also offer same- or next-day appointments that start on time. MDVIP understands that we (the doctor and patient) can work together for the best outcomes when we work as a team to achieve our goals. At Chapel Hill Family Medicine, we will do all of this in a warm and welcoming atmosphere with friendly staff and a commitment towards customer service. 

I think it is helpful to know a bit about me personally so that you can understand why and how I practice medicine. My undergraduate degree in Psychology has helped me to understand what makes myself and others tick, and I believe it is an asset in providing quality care to my patients. After graduating medical school, I spent time in the Air Force where I gained leadership skills and a profound respect for our military members. I have a passion for studying nutrition, integrative and complementary medicine in order to broaden my knowledge and to optimize my patients’, my family’s, and my own health. I enjoy being physically active and I encourage my patients to do the same. Finally, I love to teach and to write about health. I believe that knowledge is power and that my job as a doctor is to educate my patients so that they may feel empowered to take control over their own health.
