My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As an internal medicine physician with subspecialties in endocrinology and geriatric medicine, I am able to work proactively with my patients to help them prevent disease and live healthier, more active lives. Patients appreciate the extra time I am able to spend getting to know them on a personal level. With my small practice size, I am also able to research challenging medical conditions and personally follow up with specialists to promote quicker and better outcomes.
