My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As I reflect on the reasons I chose a career in Internal Medicine, the first word that comes to my mind is relationships. Early on in medical school, at the University of Louisville, I enjoyed getting to know my patients as more than simply a disease or medical problem. Now in my twelfth year as a physician, getting to know my patients on a personal level and working towards their wellness goals makes every patient encounter rewarding. As an avid cyclist and triathlete, as well as father of two young children, I also understand the need to balance physical activity with the demands of work and family. My goal is to help my patients formulate and achieve their wellness goals, whatever they may be.

As the profession of medicine evolves in the 21st century, an unfortunate consequence of the changes in primary care medicine is shorter patient visits and less availability of doctors to their patients. As your private physician, I envision a return to prior times in medicine where patients could enjoy a cup of coffee in the physician’s office rather than hurry through an office visit. My patients deserve to have the time to have all of their problems addressed during an office visit in an unhurried manor. Similar to concierge type medical practice, my patients and I will enjoy the time to get to know each other on a personal level. This relationship will allow me, as your personal doctor, to develop a wellness plan suited to you, and be available to you for when you need me.
