Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

As a physician I believe I best unlock my patient's capacity to heal by listening carefully with empathy and care. My job is to make a diagnosis and design treatment, but my role is to teach my patients about their diagnosis and treatment so that together we can use the best science and technology while taking into account the limits of that science and risks of that technology to accommodate each individual's situation and preferences. My patients direct their own care under my expert guidance.Read more

I have been with the good Doctor on and off (insurance depending) since 1994 and the man is the best PCP I ever had. A very thorough Md he takes the time to listen to my medical complaints and proceeds to examine me. He has never failed to refer me to an excellent specialist and for that I owe him my life
