For more than 26 years as a family physician, I have strived to help patients see the bigger picture of their health – how nutrition, supplements, physical activity, sleep, and self-care can affect physical and mental wellbeing, longevity, and disease prevention. We are only given one body in this life and I believe how we take care of it is paramount to a full, satisfying existence. Throughout my medical career, I have developed wonderful relationships with my patients. I have learned so much from them as I believe they have learned from me. I have taken care of generations of families and feel privileged to be a part of their lives through successes, tough times, weddings, births and funerals.
I am a proponent of caring for the whole person, and I am excited to offer individualized healthcare to my patients through my MDVIP-affiliated practice. With a smaller patient panel, I am able to act as a health coach as we travel together on your health journey. Through personalized care and the extensive wellness exam, we can develop a unique health plan for you, and I can help you achieve your healthcare goals. I will be your advocate when speaking to medical specialists to help navigate the complexities of the healthcare system. We can apply a proactive rather than reactive approach.
I am incredibly excited about my MDVIP affiliation and helping patients and their families. Additionally, I can offer same- or next-day appointments with little to no waiting time. I can spend the time that is needed to answer medical questions and get to know each patient better to understand what motivates them. I am available for direct communication with patients during the day and after hours. I look forward to partnering with you to not only help improve treatment for current conditions, but also focus on helping to prevent disease.
It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.
