PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
“As a family medicine physician, I have the distinct honor of providing primary care to patients across their lifespan. My ultimate goal is to ensure that my patients remain healthy and stay informed about up-to-date treatments and preventive care recommendations, while remaining true to individual health preferences. Forming partnerships with patients helps me to achieve this goal. I strive to provide as much care as possible within the primary care office and work hard to coordinate with all referring providers when a health problem requires specialist expertise. I look forward to caring for my patients and their family!”
