About

Bio

<h2></h2><h2>I am a Board Certified Internal Medicine doctor, United States educated and trained, who had been in a group practice for 11 years. I decided to open a solo practice focusing on the individual needs of each patient. While maintaining my traditional approach, I continue to embrace all current and new medical technologies.</h2><h2> </h2><h2>I take pride in educating all my patients on issues of risk management, prevention of illness, and healthy lifestyles. In the era of quick fix medicine, I am a throwback to the old world medical practitioner while coordinating and managing your total care. Within my practice, you will find compassion and wellness.</h2>

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.
