  • Philosophy of Care

    My philosophy of care is to partner with patients to help them adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle and, when needed, to make positive changes. I try to educate patients about the health ramifications of their day-to-day activity and nutritional selections. I also try to help patients identify and overcome barriers to the making, and then implementing, health promoting choices while avoiding self-destructive behaviors. I also believe that treatment of illness, whether acute or chronic, is a collaborative effort between the physician and patient, supported by the patient’s families and friends. Care should be tailored to the individual, and the individual should be committed to making a good faith effort comply with treatment. I believe that ultimately, it is the responsibility of individuals to act in a constructive manner to optimize their own health.

  • Why I Entered Medicine

    Growing up, I lost three of my four grandparents by the time I was 14 years old. I saw firsthand the devastating toll serious illness had not only upon individuals, but also on their families. As I pondered my career choices, in the context of an interest in natural science, I wanted to be able to help people live long and healthy lives. I was influenced positively by our family’s own physicians. A medical career was clearly the best choice to accomplish this goal, and still is.

  • Community & Charity Involvement

    As the parent of the developmentally disabled adult son, my primary interest has been in support of the local Special Olympics which provides not only an opportunity for physical activity, but also for making and maintaining social relationships.

  • Personal Interests

    My personal interests include exercise and fitness, not unlike the lifestyle recommendations I make to my patients. I run for exercise, train for half marathons and participate in one triathlon yearly. I enjoy learning about the use of computers and information systems in medicine. I also enjoy reading and read at least one non-work-related book every month.
