“I strive to educate my patients regarding certain keys to good health, including avoidance of harmful substances (tobacco and drugs), alcohol in moderation, proper diet, routine exercise, recommended vaccinations, approved cancer screening, and avoidance of health ‘fads.’ I strive to develop a relationship so that when illness does intervene, my patients can rely on my responsiveness, caring, and expertise.”
