My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
When I started medical school twenty years ago, I had no idea what I was getting into. I had an idealistic view of how the system should be and what my role in it would be as a primary care physician. Initially, I worked for a large HMO group and then a government run facility. Volume was often the goal over quality.
When the opportunity of private practice presented itself ten years ago, I jumped on it. I needed to spend time with my patients, get to know them and find out what is important to them. I needed the time to develop a relationship. Private practice provided for that type of personalized healthcare, but as my practice has grown, it has become more difficult to give each patient the time and attention that they deserve. When looking for a solution to the problem of volume driven medicine, I decided to partner with MDVIP, a company focused on helping physicians provide “concierge” type care. They have assisted me in creating a practice that will keep me up to date with the latest advances in medicine and the time to address the healthcare goals of my patients.
I am excited about this new stage in my practice. I am working with each patient to create health goals specific to their needs and motivate them through frequent contact and availability. I will work together with each patient on current trends, guidelines and research while helping them choose their ideal path to a healthy and fulfilling life. Emphasis on prevention and lifestyle modification will always come before medications. Weight loss and control, general health through diet and proper nutrition, exercise and mental wellness are my key focus to achieve optimal health in my patients. I look forward to getting to know each of my patients better and advocating for them. My practice serves Ventura County and is located close to Moorpark, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village. I am affiliated with Simi Valley Hospital and Los Robles Hospital. I maintain board certification in Family Medicine.
