My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My philosophy of doctoring is elucidated in the following excerpts from the Oath of Maimonides (1135-1204 CE); noted physician, philosopher and scholar:  

“May the love for my art actuate me at all times… Grant me the strength, time and opportunity always to correct what I have acquired, always to extend its domain; for knowledge is immense and the spirit of man can extend indefinitely to enrich itself daily with new requirements”.   

I have a profound interest in the interaction of diet and health in a patient-centered physician relationship, which is a cornerstone of the MDVIP mission. Quoting Maimonides again, “No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means”.   

I am a broadly-versed general internist of over thirty years’ experience excited to offer this personalized healthcare approach in the Eastern Shore and Baldwin County. I have interests in cardiovascular health, diabetes and hypertension. I am an attending physician at Thomas Hospital in Fairhope, at which I am also on the Medical Executive Committee and was a Patient Safety Hero in 2018. As your private physician who knows your health inside and out, it is important to manage your care if you are hospitalized. Similar to conveniences often associated with concierge medicine practices, I also offer same- or next-day appointments that start on time. Welcome to the personalized health care of my MDVIP-affiliated practice which affords you the tools, wealth of information and compassion for your well-being!
