About

Bio

Practicing the highest quality of Internal Medicine. The practice is structured as a concierge practice without the fees. We bill most insurance companies and have ample staff to provide individual, caring service without feeling like just a number. We specialize in prevention and wellness as well as caring for the sickest of patients with serious medical issues. As a comprehensive practice, we also have weight loss programs and diabetic education available. The ARNP in my practice has the same philosophy about practicing medicine. Trying to diagnose and treat patients without referring everyone out to specialists is a top priority. In house bone density screening as well as ultrasound and vestibular testing is available. Skin care products, Botox and fillers are also available with myself doing all of the consultations and injecting.

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.
