From the Doctor:
I practice family medicine because it gives me the opportunity to participate in true continuity of care. Seeing a patient grow from an infant to adolescence to adulthood is an intensely gratifying experience.
I serve as an advocate for my patients, emphasizing the importance of preventive care. Since it may take decades before clinical disease manifests, it's important to prevent adverse outcomes by promptly identifying risk factors and intervening as soon as symptoms arise.
When I'm not working part-time at the office, I'm spending time with my family and traveling. I've explored the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
