Caring for the sick and healthy individual has always been my passion. I chose family medicine because it allows me to care for my patients holistically and across their lifespan. Furthermore, the continuity of care allows me to partner with my patients to bring evidence-based practice into their care through prevention, education and screening before the onset of any disease. I approach each patient as a unique individual and not a number. My goal is to assist the patient in making good lifestyle choices that can help reverse and lower their risks for chronic diseases, thereby helping them live a healthier life overall.
