About

Bio

I empathize with anyone facing a challenge to his or her quality of life, whether it’s weight control or a life-threatening disease. I understand how difficult staying healthy can be, as well as how rewarding that effort is. No matter what your challenges are, my mission is helping you to overcome them. I believe that as a physician, preventing disease is as much my responsibility as curing it. Protecting health is far better medicine than repairing damage that might have been prevented. My goal is to help my patients maintain their health, improve their immune response and prevent disease. In addition to immunizations and tests, I promote healthy lifestyle changes, good nutrition and appropriate exercise to improve the quality of life they already enjoy.
