My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Wellness is an active process, unique to each individual. Personal wellness requires that we are aware of areas where we can improve our health and achieving wellness can only be accomplished by a partnership between patient and doctor where there is adequate time to identify areas for improvement and then monitoring for success.
