My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My MDVIP-affiliated practice creates generosity of time and space for coaching and teaching so that, working together, we can have a positive impact on chronic medical conditions. Such generosity of attention forges and powers our common bond. As your medical partner, I will care for you and work with the many specialists in our Rochester community as needed.

Managing chronic inflammation is a special interest in my family medicine practice. I believe that chronic medical conditions are triggered by inflammation, which requires ongoing management. By paying close attention and providing more personalized care for my patients, I can help patients get ahead of inflammation. 

My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practice. You can also contact me directly and be seen on the same or next day.

As your MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician, together we can
