“I see the practice of medicine and the care of patients as collectively both an art and a science. Through open, honest communication, creativity – and a drive to educate, inform, and guide – the relationship the physician fosters with both the individual patient and the community tempers the hard, cold facts and evidence provided by the latest research. All this is aimed at helping people accomplish their personal healthcare goals.”

Through open, honest dialogue, I believe that the doctor-patient relationship can achieve wonders. I look forward to the opportunity to help you reach your healthcare goals.”

“I believe a personal relationship with patients means listening to their concerns and values, and meeting them where they are whether for an uncomplicated acute problem, a worrisome new symptom, or the management of multiple chronic conditions. Our Patient-Centered Medical Home is not just a certification, but a dedication to providing personalized, holistic care using the most modern tools and evidence to provide high-quality care.”

“As a practitioner and teacher of Family Medicine, I treasure the long term relationship with my patients that is possible in my field as well as the opportunity to teach this specialty to others.
