My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

To the average person, the medical world can be confusing, intimidating and even frightening. As your personal physician, it’s my job to guide you through the ever‐changing maze of medical information, to treat your present illnesses and perhaps most importantly, to give you the factual information you need to help you stay healthy. I believe I can do this most effectively by being affiliated with MDVIP. I reduced my patient load considerably so I can spend more time with each patient and perform a thorough review of past treatments and procedures. My MDVIP-affiliated practice, often compared to a concierge medicine practice, also offers conveniences like same- or next-day appointments. I look forward to getting to know you as an individual and working as a team to help you set goals for maintaining or improving your health and better preventing future problems.  

In addition to my passion for prevention and wellness, I have a strong interest in Travel and Wilderness Medicine. I love to use that knowledge for myself and share it with patients to assure safe and healthy travels. I have lived in Muskegon all my life and have been practicing at the same location for over 35 years. As such, I have long‐term relationships with many specialists in our area. And while I believe that laughter is good medicine and lightens the load, I take my job as your personal physician very seriously.
