I offer integrative primary and consultative care that is comprehensive, wholistic, individualized and centered on patients' unique needs and goals. I combine state-of-the-art conventional family medicine with lifestyle medicine (nutrition, exercise, stress management), mind-body, botanical, and manual medicine to create a whole-person approach to health and illness.
I emphasize wellness and primary prevention and in partnership with my patients, develop individually tailored lifestyle programs and assist my patients in developing the skills needed to change behavior and lifestyles.
I believe that coordination of care is vital for improving wellbeing and preventing unnecessary interventions and keeping patients safe. I, therefore, make every effort to coordinate care with a collaborative team of physicians and non physician practitioners.
