My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal as your physician is to provide optimal personalized care that includes effective treatment of current medical problems, as well as focusing on preventive care. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I will be able to provide the same level of care as if you were part of my family. We will work together to make informed decisions to achieve your health care goals.
I have over 30 years of experience in primary care, including inpatient hospital care. I firmly believe that primary medical care should focus on the whole body and not the individual organs to optimize medical care. I try to ensure that concurrent care documentation from consultant physicians is kept current and updated in the patient records, thus maximizing total care and minimizing possible treatment errors.
I feel very blessed to be part of the Abilene community. I look forward to a long-term relationship with all my current and future patients.
