"I want to give people the tools to live the best life they can, because nothing is more important than health. In the last 15 days of their life, no one has told me they wished they had made more money. Many, however, express regret that they no longer have a chance to embark on a new way of living, taking the best possible care of their bodies, which are the vessels of their spirit, intellect and the means of making a productive impact on the world."
My patients and I have been successful because we trust each other. I listen to their concerns. They know the primary thing I am offering to them is my expertise in analyzing the situation and helping them navigate through the complexities of the system to achieve their healthcare goals. In my new practice I will also be offering practical solutions to prevent healthcare problems in the future. Every step of the way, I will listen to you, I will gather information, and we will make a plan that works for you as we move forward together.
I will be the CEO of your health care team. I will help you make strategic decisions about the management of your health concerns .I can make the system work for you. Today's healthcare system is designed to be generic and built on who pays for the care. I can customize that system for you by:
Navigating through the complexities
I will partner with you. I will be there every step of the way and find a solution that is right for you. I will help you make the investments that keep you living life fully and vitally.

Finding the right medical care for you is a scary proposition. No matter if you are rich or poor a healthcare crisis can be overwhelming. You need a navigator. You need someone with knowledge and influence and judgment and connections. I have 25 years experience in taking care of patients, both acute and chronic. I have partnered with my patients to show them how to prevent experiencing a heart attack or stroke in their lifetime.
