My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Remember the days of old-fashioned primary care, where family doctors had personal relationships with all their patients, made hospital visits and house calls, and had time to really listen and answer questions? In the current healthcare environment, those days are long gone. But in my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I strive to come close to that ideal model of primary care, combined with 21st century medicine.
My practice, which is similar to concierge medicine, affords me the time to develop a personal relationship with you, perform comprehensive exams and thoroughly discuss test results, make hospital visits, coordinate care with local specialists and expedite appointments, and assist you every step of the way in making informed healthcare decisions. I offer same or next-day appointments and am there for you 24/7.
In addition, I will partner with you to craft a highly customized plan to effectively treat your current health problems and prevent new ones. We will focus on disease prevention and early diagnosis, along with wellness and a healthy lifestyle.
I’ve been a family doctor for over 25 years and have also served in the U.S. Navy. My areas of interest include heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and preventive healthcare. I’ve developed excellent relationships with specialists and other healthcare providers in the community to ensure you receive optimal care.
My primary care practice serves the Wilmington, Greenville, Pike Creek, Hockessin, Newark and Bear areas of northern Delaware, as well as neighboring communities in Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey. I am affiliated with Christiana Hospital.
If you join me, we will work together, as a team, to realize your healthier future.
