My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Being a physician and trusted with the care of my patients is a privilege and honor that I hold sacred. I strive to forge a relationship with each patient based on empathy, deep listening and compassionate caring so that I am able to truly know and understand the whole person. Then, we can work together to achieve optimal physical and, just as importantly, mental well-being. I have come to understand that mind and body are inextricably connected and we must make certain they are in alignment and harmonious.

I also strive to provide up to date, 21st century medical care in a professional, calm and unhurried space. I pride myself on being an excellent diagnostician who can manage both simple and complex medical cases. I am fortunate to have a network of world class specialists that I collaborate with and rely on to provide state of the art medical care in their respective areas. Now that I am affiliated with MDVIP, I look forward to providing medical care that my patients deserve.

My interests include an emphasis on optimizing wellness and prevention through a personalized program that includes healthy diet and exercise. I have a special interest in providing risk assessments and treatments for diabetes, elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke prevention. I enjoy working with patients of all ages.

I chose to go to see Dr. Gehring at age 70. He had been recommended by a couple who have been friends for over 20 years and who both are patients of his. After talking with them, I realized that at my age, I should move beyond the cursory physical examinations I had been getting every year for decades. I felt that I needed a doctor and a practice where the tests I took were more thorough… See more
