Patients Seen: Adults

My approach to prac­tic­ing med­i­cine is sim­ple. My goal is to work with my patients in order to ade­quate­ly deliv­er high qual­i­ty med­ical care. I make it a point to keep my patients well informed, com­fort­able and engaged in their own treat­ment. Any ques­tions, con­cerns or opin­ions are always tak­en into account as no one knows their own body and symp­toms than the patient. I want to be a physi­cian that is approach­able and relat­able and will always put my patients first.
