Care Philosophy

"My care philosophy is to care for the whole patient. As the old adage states, I believe you are more than the sum of your parts. You are an extension of your spouse/partner, your family, and your community. The reason I specialize in Family Medicine is to be able to deliver care to a wide spectrum of the community. However, even the best medicine will fail if there is not both initiative from the patient and clear communication between the patient and the doctor.

At Premier Family Physicians, we utilize a secure email portal to keep communication active between patients and clinicians. I encourage my patients to use this tool with me and my staff. By you letting me get to know you, we can work on preventive measures for good health. If the need for treatment occurs, I will customize the treatment to fit who you are. I strive to keep this philosophy at the forefront of my practice by taking the time to get to know my patients and using this knowledge to guide treatments as necessary."
