My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Being an MDVIP physician helps me fulfill my long-term goal: to give individualized and in-depth care to my family of patients. To me, my patients are my family. Concentrating on a fewer number of patients allows me - and them - the time for examination, dialogue and healthcare planning in a more relaxed environment. I also am delighted to provide an in-place network of highly ranked specialty centers.
