Philosophy of Care

I chose a career in primary care because I value forming long-term relationships with patients (and their families), as well as getting the opportunity to be the initial point of contact for my patients' care. My main area of interest is preventive health, including how regular exercise and a healthy diet can significantly improve overall well-being.

I believe in patient-centered care and shared decision making and look forward to working with you to develop a joint medical plan for any health issues that may arise. Because of this belief, I strongly encourage patients to bring family members and loved ones with them to participate in their care as I find this achieves the best results.
