Philosophy Of Care

Patients seen for weight management: ages 15 and under
Patients seen for family medicine: all ages

I’m passionate about sharing patient education as the foundation of our relationship and in providing patients the tools needed for them to make the best decisions for their health. Wellbeing and disease prevention are achieved when body, mind and environment are all optimal and in harmony. This lifestyle focus is key to my approach in treating all my patients and families, especially those struggling with childhood obesity.
