"I am a Board Certified Family Medicine physician who has been practicing for more than 20 years, taking care of newborns to century-ians. Since medical school, my great love for medicine has always been caring for all ages, helping with acute illnesses (from common colds to serious problems), chronic health concerns, disease prevention, and my favorite, wellness promotion. While gaining experience in treating patients the world over, I have come to see a common thread, patients want to be heard and cared for – we all do actually. Over the last couple decades, I have become disillusioned with the trend of doctor/patient relationships. In our current model, we often have no time to address the real health concerns of our patients."
