WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a primary care physician for adults and children, I have enjoyed being able to form relationships with patients that have resulted in improved quality of health and lifestyle for over a decade. My goal, since medical school, has been to practice what I believe is the art of medicine; that is a tailored approach to each individual patient. I strive to work as a source for patients to develop plans of care that they are willing and able to follow. This is often achieved by making current medical knowledge accessible and relatable so that patients are motivated to work as partners in their care. I utilize straightforward communication to review my patients' healthcare goals and celebrate successes. This team approach has afforded me more success than simply dictating care to patients over the years. In recent years, I have become interested in focusing on preventive measures to help decrease diseases later in life. I love working with patients who are engaged in their care but also hope to use education as motivation for those that do not find healthcare to be a great priority at this time.
