An internist with 8 years of rigorous university-based post graduate training as a foundation for a varied and extensive practice in internal medicine, clinical nutrition, and gastroenterology.
  • A general physician with subspecialty skills (including endoscopy, colonoscopy, liver biopsy, and small bowel capsule endoscopy); a subspecialist who thinks like an internist. A former Chief Resident who is an avid teacher, who can discuss issues in plain talk.
  • Prevention is stressed, nutrition is integrated into the practice.
  • I strive to do my best to help my patients achieve, maintain, and restore their vigor, vitality, health and well-being in mind, body, and spirit.
  • My diagnostic approach emphasizes time with a patient, bedside evaluation, history and physical exam, with judicious and appropriate use of laboratory, radiology, endoscopy, and subspecialty consultants.
