My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My idea of a great medical practice is one that has a strong partnership with each patient on a uniquely personal level. Together we will develop a careful plan to keep you in the best of health by addressing all of your current medical problems. We will also be looking at all aspects of your specific lifestyle, family history and physical condition to actively seek out potential issues that could affect your health later on and work to help prevent them.

My office staff and I firmly believe in a team approach with our patients. We all play a big part in this partnership for your health. I am so glad that our new affiliation with MDVIP gives us not only the time to deliver this very personalized medical care model, but the support and resources to accomplish this. With our new partnership, your health care can only get better!
