My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

After practicing medicine for 30 years, I feel fortunate to be part of the MDVIP personalized healthcare model. It has enabled me to care for my patients more proactively and to focus on prevention and wellness. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I am able to get to know you as a whole person and understand all the issues in your life that impact your health. My patients and I have time to talk and I have time to listen. I am able to see you quickly in the office or at home when the need arises and support you and your family in times of illness. I partner with my patients to help them achieve their personal goals and enjoy happier, healthier lives.
