My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My philosophy is to put you first. We determine your goals then strive for the best physical and emotional care possible. We develop our partnership by listening to each other. I seek to provide the care and education that you need with honest and open communication. There have been many advances in medical technology and treatment. You have the need and right to be treated with dignity, respect and compassion as a person in navigating through the complexity of today’s health care system.

My commitment to you is to promote health, reduce suffering and help optimize your performance. Using a preventive care model focused on healthy habits, nutrition, exercise, stress management and periodic screenings is the best way I’ve found to achieve these goals.
