“I believe that in today’s ever-changing healthcare landscape the primary care physician’s role is becoming more and more integral. I cherish and enjoy the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with patients and their families to develop long-term strategies to manage sometimes very complex health issues as well as coordinating care with other health care providers.

I believe the biggest service I can give my patients is to be an advocate and help them take an ever-increasing role in the management of their own health.

I believe that success as a primary care physician embodies the belief by my patients that above all else I care.”
