Care Philosophy

As a board certified internist I am capable of treating complicated problems that may require hospitalization but I focus on the overall well being of the patient. I am a good listener and will not let you leave until we are completely satisfied with the direction taken. In addition to medical problems I am well versed in sports injuries and have cared for several professional and amateur teams.
