Practice Interests: “I like to focus on helping patients maximize their health. Although I practice general, adult primary care, I particularly enjoy helping patients deal with heart, vascular, men’s health, and digestive problems.” “I like helping my patients find better alternatives to drugs, and age more-healthfully.” “Why accept status quo, when we can be better?”
Philosophy: “A good doctor must take time to explore a person’s condition, and study the whole picture – not just the presenting problem. A good doctor considers the patient’s long term health, years down the line, and knows when to say; ‘I don’t know, but I’ll try to find out.’”
