My primary care practice philosophy centers on a strong bond with patients, whom I consider family and friends. Through this relationship, I can better evaluate and provide treatment options. I find that to see the full picture of patients’ health, I need to know them more in depth. Similarly, treatment adherence relies on trust in the physician and the direction that is recommended. I like to take extra time to better educate patients about their illnesses and treatments so they can make the best decision for them. It is the strength of the bond between the patients and their physician that I believe determines the quality of the outcome. I focus considerably on carefully forming and nurturing this bond over time.
While I practice full-spectrum adult primary care, I have a special interest in elder care. This is a fascinating time when patients serve a key role for multiple generations of their family members and require as precise and personal medical care as possible to help maximize quality and function in their lives. Additionally, I am very interested in the knowledge of the world and life experience that patients bring.
My family’s clinic has been serving Tempe, Arizona, and the East Valley for more than 43 years. We know how to deliver personal, responsive and well-coordinated care. I am honored to continue running our clinic for another generation. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices.
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.
