My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I take the time necessary to understand my patient’s needs and goals so that together we can personalize a plan to meet your needs. I believe that prevention and timely intervention are the keys to longevity and a richer, healthier life. The MDVIP program allows me to use advanced diagnostics and preventive screenings to identify risks and formulate a wellness and treatment plan for each individual patient. I will ensure you are educated, empowered and supported to achieve the maximum return on the most important investment you’ll ever make—your own health.
