“I aim to provide holistic medical care to all my patients. I believe that treating and preventing illnesses requires looking at the whole person: physically, mentally, spiritually, and as they relate to their community and surroundings. These different aspects of the human experience are intimately connected such that illness in any one area affects the health of the others. I believe that each individual experiences health and illness differently, and I aim to work together with my patients to develop the unique treatment and lifestyle regimen that will work best for them.”
