Practice Philosophy:

 

“I believe a solid patient-doctor relationship is of utmost importance to providing quality patient care; especially because many autoimmune and arthritic diseases are chronic processes that evolve over time.  My focus is on approaching each patient as an individual, educating patients on their disease process, and providing them with the most up-to-date treatment plans. My hope is that all of my patients feel knowledgeable and comfortable enough to be active participants in deciding how their disease is managed. I recognize that there is not a “one-size fits all” solution to diseases and I will often combine traditional medicine with alternative and complementary treatments.”
