Patients Seen: Adults

It is an impor­tant part of my prac­tice to pay thought­ful atten­tion to the med­ical, emo­tion­al, and psy­choso­cial aspects of each person’s care – as I often say to trainees work­ing with me, It is impor­tant to treat the whole per­son, not just parts of them.” I take pride in devel­op­ing ongo­ing part­ner­ships with patients and their loved ones as they work through each of these impor­tant aspects together.

Are you due for your screen­ing colonoscopy? If you have been putting it off or recent­ly turned 45, now is the time to get it sched­uled. Don’t wait until it’s too late! Col­orec­tal can­cer is pre­ventable when pre-can­cer­ous polyps are found and removed dur­ing a colonoscopy, that’s why screen­ing is so impor­tant. Take charge of your health and sched­ule your screen­ing colonoscopy by call­ing 630−717−2600.
