To provide comprehensive care for the whole family, from birth to death!
My goal is to provide compassionate care and I believe all people should have access to affordable healthcare. I prescribe generics when possible to save my patients money, only order medical tests when absolutely necessary, and try to help my patients understand how they can improve their health with lifestyle changes.
Taking care of families! I also enjoy providing women’s healthcare, including prenatal care, as well as promoting family planning including birth control and vasectomy.
