My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal as your personal physician is to provide you with the most up-to-date information and treatment to enhance your life and preserve your health. While treating disease is a necessity, I think we would all like to prevent disease and that is what I pride myself in doing. In partnering with MDVIP and practicing in a concierge-like type of primary care practice, I am now able to create individualized wellness plans that will help you achieve your health goals in an unhurried environment.

As a board certified family medicine physician, with over 25 years of experience, I have spent my entire career concentrating on all aspects of health. As an extension of my commitment to preventive health, I also became one of only 21 doctors in Virginia to be board certified in Clinical Lipidology. My regional referral center, the Center for Advanced Lipid Management in Roanoke, helps many patients in southwest Virginia and I bring the same heart attack prevention expertise to my primary care practice at Smith Mountain Lake. I treat my patients as I would want to be treated, always going the extra mile to explain things in an easy to understand, friendly and non-confrontational manner. I love what I do.

On a personal note, I have other passions, which are spending time with my wife, kids and dog. My hobbies include golf and playing guitar.
