Care Philosophy

I am a family physician who has been in the field for 25 years.  I have worked in community health centers(13 years), multispecialty practices (Harvard Vanguard for 4 years) , and integrative health centers.  I have gone through my  own health issues and utilizing the principles of functional medicine have regained my health.  For that reason I am passionate about functional medicine.  I wish to help improve other people's health by listening to their story and figure out what things are going on in the body that need to be improved.
