My practice consists of taking care of the entire family, from infancy through the advanced stages of life. I enjoy family medicine as it allows me to participate in the treatment of most medical conditions. I especially enjoy working with patients on disease prevention and the management and improvement of chronic diseases. I also believe in advancing the field of medicine by including medical learners (students and residents) in the care of my patients. I believe that medical care is dependent on the patient-physician relationship. I really enjoy getting to know my patients beyond their health conditions. I always partner with my patients on decisions regarding the management of their health.
