​Being healthy is more than just having normal lab results. It's about being well physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. I regard each patient as a whole person, and not just a list of medical problems. I partner with my patients to restore their wellness, looking first to what lifestyle changes will be beneficial and then recommending medication if necessary.
