As a personal physician, I want to help my patients do all they can to live healthier, primarily through weight management, proper exercise and excellent nutrition. If you are dealing with a particular medical condition(s), we can use these same tools to help you better manage your condition(s) or to even try to reverse or slow any unwanted disease process. In our current medical care environment, there rarely is enough time to discuss these helpful topics. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician I have the time to address important elements of your health. I prefer to use as few medications as possible and together, we can work toward these goals. I strive to get to know my patients well, and I believe the MDVIP practice model can enhance my ability to know you better and help you more!
I was a cofounder of Fuquay-Varina Family Practice 34 years ago and have been a board-certified family physician since that time. My years in practice have allowed me to develop strong relationships with many of the excellent sub-specialists in the Triangle area, and I never hesitate to recommend a referral for something that may go beyond your primary care needs. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests that go beyond those of traditional primary care practices, along with conveniences, like same- or next-day appointments and the ability to contact me during and after hours.
Our practice serves many communities in southern Wake County, including Fuquay-Varina and Holly Springs, as well as the greater Angier community in northern Harnett County. I am an instructor for the UNC School of Medicine and enjoy teaching first- and second-year medical students. On a more personal note, my faith plays a huge part of who I am, and I have enjoyed taking part in numerous medical mission trips over the years, including to El Salvador, Africa and India. I would love to have you join my new MDVIP-affiliated practice!
