My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Medicine has been at the center of my life and quickly became a fascination ever since I was a young child navigating a complex chronic disease. It was a natural extension that I was drawn to primary care because of the meaningful relationships I am now honored to build with my patients and the ability to help provide life-changing care across the lifespan. Today’s approach to healthcare too often focuses on quantity over quality which can neglect to appreciate the individualism innate to every patient that contributes to health and disease. It is my belief that the most fundamental role as your physician is to devote as much time as needed to understand your health and wellness goals so we can better reach your optimal health, together. Being an MDVIP-affiliated doctor helps me achieve this, as it allows for close doctor-patient relationships to be built, along with time to help identify and address aspects that contribute to your health (for example, what you eat, how much you exercise, how you cope with stress, understanding your unique metabolism and genetics), and to be present for you if you become ill or need me urgently.

I practice full spectrum primary care with an emphasis on the management (and often possible reversal!) of chronic medical conditions using exercise therapy, clinical nutrition, advanced laboratory diagnostic testing and medications when appropriate. I offer many office-based services, including gynecologic, minor surgical, dermatologic and orthopedic procedures and management of many urgent medical problems. I also provide house calls as necessary. 

I have pursued advanced training in integrative medicine, as I recognize that blending allopathic and evidence-based non-allopathic modalities can often help produce improved health outcomes. I am also passionate about nutrition, and with my clinical research background, I regularly serve as an invited Peer Reviewer for several medical nutrition journals. I respect that medicine is indeed a practice and is always evolving, and therefore routinely participate in a wide variety of continuing education beyond what is necessary so that I can offer you the personalized care you deserve.
