My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I believe that health starts with moderation and balance. As we know, a well-balanced lifestyle will lead to a healthier person. Those that are able to balance the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of their lives are happier and healthier. As your primary care physician, my goal is to help you reach the balance you need to attain your personalized healthcare goals and to reduce your need for medications and/or hospitalizations. 

My family practice office is located in Corpus Christi, Texas and, for the last 29 years, I have treated my patients in both Corpus Christi Medical Center and the Spohn Hospital Systems. I have an interest and expertise in treating diabetes, depression, physical injuries and high cholesterol. In my smaller, more personalized MDVIP-affiliated practice, we will develop your personalized preventive wellness program. It is our hope and mission that all of our patients will be open to creating a special working partnership, together.

We believe in our motto “Treating Patients, Not Just Symptoms.”   


 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.
