    Philosophy of Care 

    Being a primary care physician, I see the patient as a whole...delivering care to prevent disease as well as treating their many chronic/acute illnesses. I also coordinate their care with their respective specialists as well as connect them with services that can help them with management of their conditions, such as dietary/nutrition counseling, behavioral health, nursing services, physical/occupational therapies, home health care, and hospice, to name a few. I function as my patient's advocate, their educator, their support system and their partner in care. Dealing with patients and their families has been my life's work. Seeing them through each facet of their lives has been fulfilling and gratifying, knowing that I have made a difference.
