Patient Care Philosophy

I try to treat each of my patients the way I would want one of my family members to be treated when they see their doctor.

Clinical Interests

Weight Loss - There are now quite a few medications that can be helpful in losing weight.

Opiate Dependence - I have enjoyed seeing patients' lives improve in all aspects as they are treated with Suboxone.

Vertigo - I like treating people with vertigo (dizziness) since it’s often misdiagnosed and about half of patients can walk out of the office significantly improved.

Back, Shoulder and knee pain - My father was an orthopedic surgeon and I spent a fair amount of time watching him treat patients. As a result, I am comfortable taking care of basic orthopedic problems such as back, shoulder and knee pain.

Diabetes - My mom has diabetes. When you have a family member with a certain illness you become that much more interested in it.
