My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
We will make full use of the many preventive care resources available through the MDVIP Wellness Program, which includes advanced screenings and counseling for heart health, diabetes prevention, bone health, respiratory health, nutrition, fitness, sleep and more. As your private doctor, I will tailor your individual wellness program to fit your needs and goals. I look forward to working with you in my internal medicine practice as we move forward together in this new and exciting medical journey. I see it as a wonderful opportunity to help you realize your full health potential. Prevention has become our most important diagnosis.
My personalized healthcare practice, sometimes compared to a concierge medical practice, is located in Newton, Massachusetts at the medical offices of Newton-Wellesley Hospital, where I am on staff. I serve the areas of Newton, Wellesley, Needham, Brookline, Weston and the surrounding communities. I am a U.S. Air Force veteran and am accepting new patients.
