I believe that the cornerstone of providing healthcare is a strong partnership between the patient and physician. When patients partner with their physicians, they feel empowered to make changes in their lives because they are part of the decision‐making process. In my many years of practice as a family physician, I have encouraged patients to call me by my first name to help make the point that we are on the same team, partners in their healthcare. The close personal relationships that I have been able to develop with many of my patients have been a blessing to me and a source of deep personal satisfaction. As an MDVIP‐affiliated primary care physician, I am excited about having more time to develop meaningful relationships with patients while providing personalized healthcare through state‐ of‐the‐art testing and preventive care designed to keep patients as healthy and as active as possible. My focus is on you and how to help you have a healthier and happier future by better preventing chronic disease and improving your health and wellness.
Having practiced in the Quad‐City area since 2010, I have relationships with many specialists who can help you with your unique needs. In addition to general family medicine, I have special interests in diabetes care, obesity management and caring for older and elderly patients.
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.
