Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Greaves "I am on the perpetual quest to practice medicine in a manner that truly achieves ultimate health for my patients. The word that best describes my style of family medicine is "collaborative" -- both with patients and with other health providers. My areas of particular interest are adolescent and women's health care (but I really do enjoy caring for a wide variety of patients)."
