About Dr. Margolis

Philosophy of care

I strive to provide you with the most modern treatments in a prompt and courteous way, and I am always available for questions. My preference in helping patients is to focus more on disease prevention and lifestyle changes than on medications.

Why I entered medicine

Though it sounds like a typical answer, I joined the medical profession to help others. And every day I work to understand the best way to make your life easier. The burden of aging and disease can ruin the daily enjoyment of life. I want all my patients to be as healthy as possible for as long as possible.

Community involvement

I like to help at the local animal shelter when time permits.

Personal interests

Outside of work I enjoy gardening, cycling, reading and meditation. Also, I try always to remain in ketosis with a low carbohydrate approach to nutrition, fighting inflammation, dementia, diabetes and heart disease.
