I love full spectrum family medicine. My special interests are in refugee medicine, wilderness medicine, OMT, and colonoscopies. I invest in my patients and their care. I find that the best results are achieved when the provider and the patient partner in that care. My philosophy of care is rooted in partnering with my patients in order to deliver comprehensive, evidence-based care by evaluating and treating the whole patient. I look forward to establishing long lasting relationships based on trust, mutual respect and understanding of each of my patient's goals of care.
