Philosophy of Care

For me, there is no greater joy than working with a family that has a newborn baby, and taking care of the newborn in addition to siblings, parents, aunts, uncles, and/or grandparents. Health is not just an individual experience, but a family and community experience. As a family physician, I work to serve the entire family.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my wife, my young daughter, and two cats. Also, I am a avid sports fan and played football and basketball competitively for several years. I still continue to play basketball on aregular basis.
