As a provider, what is your medical philosophy?
As a physician, patients entrust me to not only provide excellent care but to also treat them as individuals respecting their personal needs and what they value most in their lives.
What type of care/clinic interests are you most passionate about?
So much of our current healthcare model focuses on disease management. Sadly, the emphasis on preventive care has suffered. I enjoy working with patients in guiding them along their way to making incremental, individualized, healthy changes to improve their quality of life and do what they can to avoid chronic disease or reduce its impact on their lives.
Why did you choose your specialty?
The speciality of family medicine prepared me to provide comprehensive care of the patient in the context of their family and community.
What qualities best describe the care you provide your patients?
In keeping abreast of evidence-based changes in medicine, I endeavor to provide the most current care to optimize their health.
Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day?
As a family physician, I value the relationships I come to build with patients over time and the trust they allow me earn as their confidant and partner in health.
What is the most important thing patients should know about you and your practice?
I do not follow a one-size-fits-all approach to the practice of medicine. I will take the time to find out what is most important to you as we develop a plan to support and improve your health.
