Professional Interest

Geriatrics, chronic disease management: HTN, diabetes, and hypercholesterolemia, Life style modification for the prevention of disease.

Patient/Physician Philosophy

I believe in the concept of the Medical Home where my patients are at the center of the care and in collaboration with me and the care I provide for them. I believe in prevention of disease is better than cure. One final thought, my primary role as a family physician is education and guidance for my patient as they navigate the complexities of our current health care system.

Personal Interests

I personally enjoy the outdoors, and spending time with my wife. We Love to go to the movies, theater, and the symphony. I love to tinker with electronics in my workshop at home and I am also an avid Kite Flyer!

Educational Resources

In patients with type 1 diabetes, do insulin pumps improve outcomes compared with self-injections?
