I love most about being a family physician is having the opportunity to build
relationships with my patients and their families over the course of their
lives. My focus starts with prevention – educating and screening before the
onset of disease processes through a collaborative decision-making process with
my patients. I strive to educate on healthy lifestyle choices such as diet,
exercise, and stress management, which can help prevent and sometimes reverse
major chronic diseases.
