Throughout my four decades of medical practice, my mission has been to create a close, personal doctor‐patient relationship by applying my passion for preventive medicine and care to your acute and chronic medical needs.
During this time, while I realize many of you have been satisfied with my care, I noticed that our time together has become increasingly shorter for a variety of reasons, all outside of our control. I believe these time constraints adversely affect our mission and found myself wondering if this is as good as it can get. I believe it can get better and will do everything within my power to make it better, which is why I’ve affiliated with MDVIP!
As I connect with many of my patients, I am reminded how much I love being your doctor. My promise to you is that I will do everything in my power to create a stronger doctor‐patient relationship. By having more time with you, I am able to provide an improved level of service. Under the MDVIP model, not only will I have more time for each patient, but I intend to provide additional medical services, including an in depth and comprehensive MDVIP Wellness Exam, which will result in a better total health experience for you.
I am a board‐certified, family practice physician. My interests are personal, family and community health and wellness. I have been on staff at Royal Oak Beaumont in Royal Oak, Michigan since 1982.
It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.
