Philosophy of Care

I collaborate with my patients through honest communication about their health and focus on prevention so that chronic conditions can be avoided when possible. When a patient does have a chronic medical condition, I emphasize lifestyle modifications such as diet changes, exercise and stress relief in conjunction with the appropriate medications to work towards better health.
