After meeting him for the first time, we knew we had made a great choice. He has been amazing; and even though we have only known him for a short time, we feel like we’ve known him for years.

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
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
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.
