Philosophy of care

Our doctor-patient relationship will be a cooperative one focused on helping you maintain a healthy, functional quality of life.

Why I entered medicine

I find medicine to be an exceptional way of combining scientific knowledge with the human quest to live a fruitful, meaningful life, and then applying that knowledge in service to the community.

Community involvement

I am both solely responsible and the caregiver for several elderly family members. That plus recent professional moves have left me little time for charitable/community work other than financial support.

Personal interests

When I can find time I enjoy traveling, hiking and gardening.
