chose my career and specialty because I love the integration of science and
helping people, as I have done for two decades of working in the medical field.
I believe that disease prevention by modifying risk factors is the key to
longevity and enjoying good health, and small changes in everyday choices can
help prevent disease. I enjoy helping my patients find the motivation within
themselves to live a healthy lifestyle. I believe in patient-centered care,
integrating evidence based treatments to care for patients, while respecting
each one’s values and preferences.
