Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

High triglycerides, high cholesterol.

What techniques or procedures do you use in your practice?

I use advanced lipid testing to better characterize risk and help identify the best therapeutic approaches for hard-to-treat cases.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

In addition to general internal medicine, I am a board-certified clinical lipidologist.  I work with patients with poorly controlled triglycerides and cholesterol on achieving goal numbers, and preventing complications associated with bad cholesterol, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and pancreatitis.

Good experience. Found nothing wrong on physical exam, and lab work came back clear as well. Still showed concern for discomfort I was feeling, but the combination of physical + lab exam helped reassure me.

The doctor was great and did not rush me through the process. Followup regarding lab results was the next day. Much different from my prior dr for which I had to call them.
