WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a family physician, it has been a privilege to get to know and care for families in the greater Durham area for over 15 years, quite often taking care of several generations of the same family. What I value most about the practice of medicine is the role I play in guiding patients along a lifetime of healthy living practices -- such as making healthy diet decisions, choosing appropriate exercises, quitting smoking and maintaining healthy weight. I also value putting in to place prevention strategies that lead my patients away from developing chronic diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. Working collaboratively with my patients, I follow evidence-based guidelines in using the best available tools at detecting diseases, such as cancer and detecting it early. I am a Greenville native and love calling North Carolina home. I spend every minute I can with my own family. We find adventure anywhere from the coast of North Carolina to faraway national parks.
