“Family Practice Medicine means taking care of all family members. To provide the best care possible, I rely on my experience and continuing pursuit of education. I practice a holistic type medicine and try to integrate all my skills to improve patient health and well-being. Listening to the patient is very important and I try to be proactive by emphasizing preventive care. I use the patient/physician relationship in an effort to achieve better health and quality of life.”
