My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I value improving the quality of life in my patients, my family and myself by encouraging healthy living habits. From my studies of nutrition to my years as a registered dietitian and for the last 24 years as a physician, I have enabled the people around me to make healthier decisions, which usually leads them to live happier lives.
 
Enjoying excellent health and feeling good about oneself can be achieved with proper guidance and encouragement. This is why my patients are treated with a personal, light touch, state of the art and time-tested preventive medicine approach. The teamwork approach, working hand in hand with patients, helps them achieve their individual goals.
 
As a board certified internal medicine physician and a registered dietitian, I provide comprehensive care in the Philadelphia area to patients with a variety of disorders such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I am able to provide the quality of care and friendly bedside manner that my patients have come to expect, while enhancing their experience with a more personal concierge-like approach.
