I’m known among my patients and colleagues for being compassionate and having a good sense of humor. I find that the saying “laughter is the best medicine” holds true in many cases. When it comes to the most important matters of your care, though, there’s no joking around. I am direct and to the point in my role as your doctor and educator. As my experience has shown, working together with patients to create a plan of care is always the best approach. I’ve also found that simple, healthy lifestyle changes can often make a big difference in healing the body.
