As I got closer to retirement age, I realized that I wanted to be able to enjoy my retirement and not be like so many others I have seen who can’t walk a block without having to sit down.

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
Preventive health and wellness programs are mainstays of our practice and make for healthy and happy patients. The same goes for the treatment of acute and chronic illnesses, along with attention to diagnostic accuracy and the logistics of managing a patient-friendly practice. I believe this is what primary care is all about.
At all times and under all foreseeable circumstances, as an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I will be available to advise you, to be your medical advocate and, when called upon, to supervise your overall medical care. I also offer conveniences, like same- or next-day appointments that start on time, which may be found in concierge medicine practices.
With over 30 years of practice in this community, I am well acquainted with many of the specialists in this area and am familiar with the hospitals available to our patients and families. It is a great honor to be chosen by my patients to be their physician. It is not one that I take for granted.
