What do you attribute your success to?

  • My father was a physician and was an influential role model. Although he practiced in an environment devoid of managed care, observing him practice was a rewarding experience that helped shape me into the physician I am today.

Areas of research

  • Disease Prevention, Lifestyle Choices, Weight Management

    I am a strong advocate of preventing disease that can be prevented. I encourage my patients to undergo screening tests recommended for their age and family history.
