My philosophy is based on the basic tenant of Osteopathic Medicine. I believe that the body has an amazing ability to heal itself and if we live a healthy lifestyle, eat properly and stay fit, our bodies remain healthy. I practice preventive medicine, ensuring your child's well child check-ups are inclusive and comprehensive, and that immunizations are kept up to date. I try to treat the body as a whole instead of just focusing on one symptom or complaint. I practice evidence-based medicine and avoid unnecessary antibiotics. Medications do play a role in healthy living but I am also open to other modalities of treatment.
