My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My passion in medicine has always centered on teaching and learning with a focus on prevention and wellness rather than just disease management. As an osteopathic physician, I was trained in the holistic model of healthcare, looking at the whole person as well as their family, environment and job. In addition, I believe in helping the patient with lifestyle management to better improve their physical and mental health and well-being. My MDVIP affiliation supports a proactive partnership to individualize your care and wellness plan.

I have training in internal medicine and family practice and am board certified in family medicine. My areas of special interest include nutrition (we truly are what we eat); insulin resistance and diabetes; weight management; and women’s health. 

I have been in practice in northern Michigan for over 37 years and see patients from Petoskey, Charlevoix, East Jordan, Boyne City, Elk Rapids, Traverse City, Kingsley, Cadillac, Suttons Bay and other places. My affiliation with MDVIP and the resources it brings to my patients and me to support better health, wellness and longevity is exciting. I welcome you to be a part of my practice.


 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.
