    Physician Bio

    My favorite part of being a physician is helping patients improve not only their health, but their quality of life. Providing the best possible care means keeping up-to-date with new research, developments and treatments, as well as caring enough to provide more than "medicine-by-the-numbers." By getting to know each patient and looking at the whole picture – work, family, lifestyle and hobbies – you can individualize treatment to fit into their lives and more successfully help them accomplish their goals.

    I bring two areas of expertise to patient care: over 20 years as an Internal Medicine/ Primary Care physician, as well as over a decade spent leading cutting-edge research into new treatments for type 2 diabetes, obesity, hypertension and cardiovascular disease. For me, being able to offer the latest developments in preventing and treating these conditions is an essential part of providing outstanding care.

    Areas of Interest

    Cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension, preventative medicine, prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, thyroid disorders, and obesity treatment, including medication, consideration of bariatric surgery and post-bariatric surgery follow-up
