Philosophy of care

My approach starts by trying to understand the social history: the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live and age. These are the non-medical factors that influence outcomes. I then take your medical history and, after a physical exam, apply all these factors to treat you.

Why I entered medicine

I got into medicine because of the challenge it posed and the constant need to keep up with new developments.

Personal interests

I enjoy cross-country skiing, fishing and traveling.
