Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

Hypertension, diabetes mellitus, asthma, COPD, hyperlipidemia, acute respiratory infections.

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

I provide thorough and attentive primary medical care for chronic and ongoing medical issues, as well as acute episodic care.  I especially enjoy the diagnostic phase of a patient's medical care and working with the patient to determine the etiology of their symptoms to the extent that it’s possible.

What inspired you to become a doctor?

I knew I wanted to use scientific knowledge and logic to serve people in need of care.  I also wanted to be a caring and attentive counselor to those with medical problems or in need of medical advice.

Always a good experience with care.

Somewhat difficult for me to engage the doctor in a 2-way conversation. He speaks in clipped responses which I generally don't respond well to. Often I am reluctant to bring things up.
