Professional InterestGeriatrics, chronic disease management: HTN, diabetes, and hypercholeterolemia, Life style modification for the prevention of disease.
Patient/Physician PhilosophyI believe in the concept of the Medical Home were 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 InterestsI personally enjoy the outdoors, and spending time with my wife. We Love to go to the movies, theater, and the symnphony. I love to tinker with electronics technology in my workshop at home and I am also an avid Kite Flyer!
