Mission Statement: "My mission as an integrative family physician is to develop long-lasting relationships with patients and their families, and to create an environment where the highest quality, evidence-based, and comprehensive healthcare is delivered. I strive to accomplish this by building a trusting, collaborative climate between my team of healthcare professionals, including ancillary staff and specialists, so that together we may provide excellence in care beyond the sum of our duties. Furthermore, I actively challenge myself by seeking out new skills, continually expanding the limits of my medical knowledge, and utilizing my creativity and natural leadership in practice improvement. This drives a dynamic practice that changes through time and grows with standards of care, patients, skills and the healthcare climate."
