About

Bio

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST BUT MY CURRENT PRACTICE IS CLOSED TO NEW PATIENTS AND NO MORE HEALTHTAP CONCIERGE PATIENTS EITHER. SORRY! Family medicine trained doctor with a strong interest in patient centered medicine. I feel the clinical relationship requires input from both sides, but ultimately patient makes the decision. I am also fellowship trained in sports medicine.

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.
