About Me

Care Philosophy

As a family physician, Osteopath, and Medical Acupuncturist, I believe in providing the best care I can and treat people as human being not as numbers. I attempt to take the long view and do what is best for the patient. If acupuncture, or Osteopathic Manipulation can help besides pharmaceuticals and other advanced procedures, so much the better

The male receptionist is so rude. He's extremely ruthless. I can imagine him making patients cry. He's that bad.

He's very blunt, but he definitely cares, and he's willing to go the extra mile to help out. If you're someone who easily offends youay not like him, because he'll give it to you straight. No fluff. But he'll hear out everything you have to say, try his damnedest to help, and refer you to others as needed. He is also very good at same day appointments if something is urgent, and getting on other doctors for you to make sure things are done.

A friend has been seeing him for years and recommended me. I was able to get an appointment very quickly and the office was very friendly. He spent more time with me than any other doctor has and was very thorough. I'm surprised by the ratings here because I really feel comfortable and at ease in his office. I also like that he is a DO!

He's smart and very personable. He also does Eastern Medicine, which is a plus in my book!

He's not trustworthy. While he was cleaning my ears, I went vasovagal and fell forward. He didn't even try to catch me or stick an arm out to break my fall, he let me fall to the ground. And I fell hard. Because of that, I recieved many stitches on my face, broke my glasses and fractured a tooth. He's somewhat okay if you're just going to get advice or getting a prescription from him. But having him perform some medical procedure on you? Don't risk it, there are many better physicians than him.

Dr. T. is a pro, one of the best AP's I've had. He knows and does both eastern and western med and genuinely cares about patients and patient outcomes. Highly recommended.
