About Me

Care Philosophy

As a community doctor I want to minimize the patient - doctor divide and be a trusted resource for family medical care. I want my patients to see me as not just their doctor, but as a fellow family man, church member, and friend. A sense of community and friendship helps put things into perspective, and promotes collaboration and trust.
