About

Bio

Been In Private practice, same location, for 30 years. I serve mostly inner city population, hence I witness a lot of medical problems of a Big inner city. I emphasize Preventive health with all my patients and educate them about healthy life styles. Doctor and Patient should work as a team to maintain and comply to health care . Honest and respectful communication can promote wellness. I promote anti aging , if one is interested to enjoy life. But there is a sacrifice , there is a process of education and understanding, need to modify life style , both physical and psychological, social.
