The heart, the Art, of medical practice lies in the strength of the doctor-patient relationship; thus, the time spent listening to my patients is the most important aspect of the care that I provide.  Having a physician who knows you well can help to guide your care in directions that might otherwise be overlooked in this era of increasingly depersonalized, "by-the-numbers" medicine. 


By limiting the size of my practice, I am able to offer personalized adult and Pediatric care with same-day appointments, home visits, and direct-access for phone or e-mail consultation.  Extended visits give me the time to learn your personal and family medical history; to listen and respond to your questions and concerns; and to provide education. 


We will work together to develop a personalized health action plan that meets your goals. If this style of patient-centered care appeals to you, please contact me to learn more.
