About Me

To me, the practice of medicine is a partnership and dialogue - between patient and practitioner. It is my privilege to serve as a guide for my patients through the sometimes difficult maze of signs, symptoms, diagnostic tests as well as evolving technology and medications. I strongly believe in a holistic approach to medical care and approach each patient I see in this manner.
