My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
- A partnership between physician and patient is critical to developing unique approaches customized to your individual needs and preferences.
- Working with you, I guide your path to better health as you make choices about your lifestyle habits and behaviors.
- Self-care is as important as, and often more important than, physician-prescribed treatments.
- In addition to diagnosing and treating, my job is to educate, coach and support.
