As a primary care physician I am only one part of a patient’s health team. One of my roles is to provide patient education and utilize current evidence-based medicine so that my patients can make the best choices for themselves. Together we treat illness establish healthier lifestyles and choices and prevent preventable diseases. To help potentiate these goals each person in this team contributes invaluable time, effort, insight, personal strengths, and willingness to listen. I also believe in building a mutually respectful patient-doctor relationship founded on open communication and humor.”
