I approach every patient as a family member and treat them the way I would like myself or my family members to be treated by another physician. I do not use prescription medications as first line in treating most conditions and always recommend diet, lifestyle changes, proper nutrition and supplements before drugs unless absolutely necessary. My passion is treating and eliminating obesity and obesity related diseases. I use the latest research and personalized approach in treating each individual differently and devising a nutrition plan that fits their lifestyle. Our appointments usually run on time and I try to get all the labs and phone messages answered within a day if not very quickly. We use technology to our benefit and patients have access to their healthcare information online and can make appointments online easily.
