About

Bio

I have proudly been a Family Physician for over 20 years. I enjoy my work--I enjoy helping people, and I believe that HealthTap is a great way for me to extend my reach, and help so many more people. HealthTap allows me to do good work, without the excessive costs of traditional medical care. I still DO believe in traditional medical care, and I truly believe that nothing can replace the bond between a person and their Family Physician that develops over the years. However, this is just not practical for every single person. HealthTap fills this need
