My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I came to the vocation of medicine after training as a Master's level social worker. During my training and work as a clinical social worker, I practiced a "biopsychosocial model”. This model stresses that the medical, psychological and social components of a person's life are integrated and cannot be addressed in isolation. To truly address a patient's needs and achieve optimal functioning in an effective manner, I had to know and address all the components of the person's being. In affiliating with MDVIP, my goal is to get to know my patients better and to use that knowledge to help each patient develop an individualized healthcare plan that will help improve their health and well-being, employing the many strengths that they bring to our therapeutic relationship. 

I am a general internist trained to treat the non-surgical problems that we encounter as we age. I trained at the Warren Alpert School of Medicine of Brown University for both medical school and residency, and I have practiced as a board-certified internist in Rhode Island since 2012. Having trained and practiced in the area, I am very familiar with the various specialists in this region. If patients should require consultation or treatment by a specialist, my relationships with these specialists will be of benefit to my patients and their often specific needs. 

My MDVIP-affiliated practice, often compared to a concierge medicine practice, offers conveniences like same- or next-day appointments. We serve Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts.

Telemedicine Option: I am also using telemedicine visits to stay connected with my patients when they are unable to see me in the office. It is easy to do, and we have maintained our momentum with preventive health goals and chronic care during difficult times.
