I believe strongly in the genuine and caring relationship of the doctor and patient as the base of healing. Truly knowing an individual and their family makes holistic care possible. Because health encompasses so much more than treatment, I promote wellness by focusing on prevention and a healthy lifestyle for the entire family. One of the joys of being a family doctor is being able to see a newborn the same day I treat a 95 year old. Instead of using treatments to cover up symptoms or maladies, I feel it is important to address the root of the problem while also providing relief.
