My Areas of Practice
I practiced internal medicine in Wayzata and at Methodist Hospital. I retired from full time practice in 1998. Since then I have worked part time taking care of patients in nursing homes with the aid of nurse-practitioners. I care for persons in rehabilitation between hospital and home and also persons who need long term nursing home care. I feel that it is important to nursing home patients to have a physician actually visit them in the nursing home so as to facilitate teamwork with nurse-practitioners, the nursing home staff, and when necessary, with professionals from hospice organizations to make end of life comfortable and dignified. Not having an office schedule, I have time to spend with patients and families who have difficult and complex situations.
