My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
By being comprehensive, thoughtful, and time intensive, we are able to get to know each other well, and focus on you and your health in a way that is increasingly unavailable in the current practice environment. This allows partnership, advocacy, and comfort in keeping you healthy.
I feel my patients are an extended family, and that inviting you into our office is like welcoming you into my home. I want you to feel safe, at ease, and able to share all the concerns which will impact your long term care plans, allowing prevention, early detection, and acute care when you need it. This foundation of a trusting, personalized relationship revitalizes the principles of medical care we all trained for, which you enjoyed years ago, and still deserve today. We will customize wellness plans based on your needs and preferences, help you learn how to live a balanced healthy lifestyle, and support you in achieving your wellness goals.
