About

Bio

My training is in family medicine, treating the whole person in the context of their family. I have enjoyed practicing primary care medicine, though now my practice emphasizes outpatient care for seniors. I also enjoy using information technology to improve quality of care. I am currently writing a book to help make medical advance care (end-of-life) planning a routine part of everyday patient care, even in the busy practice setting. Fun for me: family activities with my wife & children, bicycling, swimming, kettlebells, movies & travel.

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.

This was very helpful. Thanks! Thank you doctor. I haven't yet tried clindamycin- benzoyl peroxide. I'll give it a try! Does the ointment have any specific name? How to use it?
