My Background 

 

I have been a board-certified family physician since 1985, with an active primary care practice including hospital, nursing home and office-based care.  I am now offering consultations outside of the primary care setting to meet a growing demand for various complementary and integrative approaches for both common and difficult problems and for preserving and enhancing health of the body and mind.

 

Services

 

• complete review of your medical and personal history

• comprehensive recommendations for treatment and prevention of chronic illness

• various mind-body approaches

• in-home consultations, when desired or needed

• pharmaceutical-free options when possible

• deep listening, free of time constraints

 

My services are intended to supplement your primary care, and as such are consultations and counseling in nature.

 

I cannot accept health insurance but intend our work together to be affordable. I offer discounts based on ability to pay.

 

I have found working with even the most difficult problems to be mutually rewarding when patients are motivated to learn new skills, and to change habits of lifestyle and thinking. I bring to our relationship a deep commitment to understanding you, the nature of your dis-ease and achieving whatever healing is possible.

 

If you have a health concern of the body or mind that is not being adequately addressed in the primary care or specialty setting, please contact me by email or phone. I look forward to working with you!
