My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

It has been my pleasure to have been able to practice "Marcus Welby" type of good old -fashioned family medicine for many years. I have been privileged to have known my patients and their families also as friends and neighbors, as teammates, and as colleagues. It is that doctor-patient relationship which gives perspective and insight into healthcare that cannot be taught in medical schools or in residency programs. Now, more than ever, in the face of change and upheaval in medicine, staying well has taken on new importance. Being "all that you can be" no longer applies just too young, healthy military recruits. It is the new motto for all of us. We are living in the information age. We have the ability to use technology to our advantage. We can blend the most advanced medical research and testing with the tried and true doctor-patient team approach. We can count our calories and cook and eat from healthier menus. We can walk, run, aerobicize, or choose an exercise program to plan our attack on individual illnesses. At the same time we, together, can be planning our course for wellness. In this fast-paced era of instant-messaging, it is essential to spend time addressing your health. There is nothing more important.
