    Care philosophy – I believe a person’s well-being is dependent upon them taking an active role in their own health. As a physician it is my responsibility not only to diagnose and treat, but to also empower individuals to become their own health advocates through education, motivation and example with a goal of providing the best quality of life possible.

    Philosophy of Care:
    "The practice of medicine must be a collaborative effort between patient and physician. To think that a pill or a simple procedure can right the wrongs of a lifetime of bad habits is folly. Only when an individual realizes that good health is a gift to be cherished and maintained can the full benefit of healing be realized."
