“I became a Family Medicine Physician because I believe the best medicine is preventive medicine. In addition, caring for the entire family allows me to exercise the best role of a physician which is educating patients on chronic diseases to help improve the quality of health from the pediatric to the geriatric population.”

 

PHILOSOPHY OF CARE:
