I believe that people deserve more personalized healthcare. You should be able to have a genuine conversation with your personal physician and address your current problems, discuss prevention of any new problems and work together to help improve your overall wellness. You should not feel like the next customer in a buffet line. You should feel like a valued and unique patient and leave your doctor’s office feeling cared for. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I am able to provide my patients with an individualized experience that is mutually satisfying. This is not always possible in today's "big box" primary care settings.
As an experienced board-certified osteopathic internist of more than 10 years, I am well versed in treating adult medical problems such as hypertension and diabetes just to name a few. I have worked in major hospitals in our area, taking care of patients with these problems in their acute phases with a "western" medicine approach. I also have interests in functional medicine and gut health and believe in taking a more "natural" approach first if possible, helping the body to heal itself...getting back to my osteopathic roots. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments. I am located in the heart of Columbia, SC and serve the surrounding areas which include Lexington and Irmo and various locations in South Carolina.
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.
