"When my father passed away during my first year of medical school, I recognized that small changes to his daily routine could have saved his life. This inspired my passion for helping patients to live longer by empowering them to be more proactive about their health. I stress to my patients the importance of integrative care, an approach to health that prioritizes lifestyle changes over taking prescription medications. During one-on-one visits with patients, I delve deeply into their medical history and daily habits to identify where improvements can be made in accordance with their current lifestyle. Trust is essential to any effective relationship between a doctor and patient. My goal is to assist patients as their partner in health, to build that trust through personal consultation and by making myself available when patients need me the most. I also leverage my experience as a clinical physician and my background in exercise science to support my patients in achieving their own personal health goals. By understanding their needs and designing a personalized health care plan that fits into their daily schedule, I put my patients in a position to succeed."
"This integrative approach to health care not only adds to a patient’s options but also helps to limit her/his dependence on prescription medications. Because this approach to health care focuses on treating the individual as a whole, practitioners must develop closer relationships with their patients so that they can accurately identify the root cause of their symptoms. My goal is to help my patients achieve a higher level of health and happiness by providing them with a higher level of care.
