If I could share one insight on wellness…

“Being able to communicate openly with your physician leads to a relationship where your physician knows you and will be able to care for you as a whole person, ranging from planning and prevention to being an advocate in emergencies.”

My Approach

I get to know my patients beyond their medical histories. I learn about their families, their time demands, work-life balance, stress levels, hopes and dreams. It’s what helps me better understand my patients and builds trust in our relationship, which allows us to get the best healthcare results for each patient’s lifestyle. This deep, personalized approach is why I became a family physician.
