My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My passion as your family doctor is three-pronged. First, I want to earn your trust by listening to you in a caring, compassionate and non-judgmental manner. Second, I strive to earn your respect by completing an in-depth health risk assessment that will highlight your current health status and also look for future risk factors. Finally, I want to earn your loyalty by combining your concerns, whether it is to lose weight, control your blood pressure or decrease the number of pills you take, with our assessment to formulate a comprehensive plan that we can implement together to achieve positive and measurable results for you.

With over 35 years of experience practicing family medicine, I bring an in-depth understanding of the challenges faced when treating diabetes, obesity, and coronary artery disease, as well as practicing preventive medicine. My MDVIP-affiliated practice, similar to a concierge practice, will focus on you, your health, your life and how you can live it to the fullest. Our practice serves Hershey, Hummelstown, Grantville, Palmyra, Annville, Cleona and Northern Lebanon County, Lebanon City, Myerstown, Fredericksburg as well as other communities in the South Central Pennsylvania region.
