About Me

I enjoy involving my patients in their own care. I have found that when people are more engaged in their health care that their outcomes are improved and it easier for me to do my job. I push prevention and aggressive management of diabetes, with the most up to date medicines that address blood sugar but also promote weight loss. I love taking care of entire families and multiple generations.

Probably fine with adult patients, but definitely not the right fit for my children or my family. Tried giving him the benefit of the doubt, but we always left feeling rushed out & not heard.
