About

Thank you for allowing our practice to provide you with your healthcare needs. Our main goal is to maintain our patients as healthy as possible. Our focus is on preventive medicine, nutritional counseling, and lifestyle modifications. We encourage patients to take an active role in their healthcare, and consider our relationship a partnership where most decisions are made jointly. We also welcome family participation when providing care for our elderly patients.

We care for adults, and adolescents 12 and older. We provide our patients with complete physical examinations, physical therapy, sports physicals, comprehensive female examinations, including endometrial biopsies and colposcopies, smoking cessation, nutritional counseling, skin cancer screening, and minor skin surgery.
