My passion as a physician has always been to care for the whole patient both physically and emotionally, with an emphasis on prevention and wellness. The trusting warm long-term relationships and friendships that I have developed with my patients have been the centerpiece of my successful Internal Medicine career. I thrive in creating a partnership with my patients through honest and open communication and education. This empowers patients to make informed decisions about their health and well-being so we can together create a livable comprehensive health care plan which manages chronic disease with a focus on maximizing their physical and emotional wellbeing.
I am a Board-Certified internist since 1996 and have practiced in Metro West Boston for the last 21 years. This is where I was born and raised and now reside with my family. I have a special interest in preventive medicine, Chronic Disease Management including Obesity, Diabetes, Hypertension, Cardiovascular disease, Women’s Health, and Mental Health. I support a holistic, integrative approach to health including diet, exercise, meditation/yoga and alternative medical care including acupuncture, chiropractic and herbal medication in addition to traditional medical care. I enjoy being outdoors doing activities such as hiking/walking/skiing, exercising, traveling, drawing, puzzles, and especially hanging out with my family and golden retriever Ginger.
At my MDVIP practice, you will always have a warm welcome and feel comfortable. I also offer same – or next day appointments in addition to services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medical practices.
