About

Bio

A personal physician who provides sensitive caring, medical dedication, scientific skill and clinical expertise. An internist with 8 tears of rigorous university-based post graduate training as a foundation for a varied and extensive practice in internal medicine, clinical nutrition, and gastroenterology. A general physician with sub-specialty skills (including endoscopy, colonoscopy, liver biopsy, and small bowel capsule endoscopy); a sub-specialist who thinks like an internist. A former Chief Resident who is an avid teacher who can discuss issues in plain talk. Prevention is stressed, nutrition is integrated into the practice. I strive to do my best to help my patients achieve, maintain, and restore their vigor, vitality,health, and well-being in mind, body, and spirit. My diagnostic approach emphasizes time with a patient, bedside evaluation,history, physical exam, with judicious and appropriate use of laboratory, radiology, endoscopy, and sub-specialty consultants.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
