Teaching/Healing Philosophy

A good family physician is one who takes time with you, listens to your story, conducts a thorough physical exam and consults appropriately to arrive at a correct diagnosis while developing an effective treatment protocol. Treatments should be evidence-based and time should be taken to consult the latest research on a case-by-case basis. With every visit, both your emotional and physical health will be addressed by discussing nutrition, lifestyle and stress management while concurrently managing acute or chronic conditions. Time will be taken to ensure your goals have been reached.
