About

Bio

Enjoy balancing my life as an internal medicine specialist and that of a husband and father. Love to travel, spend time with family, playing tennis, basketball, tennis, and all kinds of exercising - including dancing, and zumba. Many medical conditions I deal with are of the chronic type - many of which are preventable, which is where I place much of the emphasis in my practice. If patients already have certain conditions - the focus is towards preventing complications and death. But at all times the goal is to bring all my patients back to primary care - managing risk factors and preventing disease conditions.

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.
