My Areas of Practice

      I am honored to be able to serve adult patients of all ages, from 18 to 118 years of age, all are welcome!!  My Internal Medicine training helps me to bring an evidence-based approach to the many complexities of medical care in the 21st Century.  I like to focus on prevention and encourage a healthy lifestyle, but know when prescription medications are needed to optimize health or prevent future adverse health events. I rarely prescribe controlled substance such as narcotics or pain medications chronically, based on the current evidence.  My practice encompasses preventative care, chonic disease management, acute care, essentially any medical care needed.  I truly enjoy partnering with my patients to optimize their health and longevity.  

      In addition, I have a special interest in Physician Leadership, Quality of Care Measures, and Physician and Team Development.
