and experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of allergies, arthritis,
blood diseases, cancer, diabetes, digestive diseases, illness in the elderly,

An Internist treats both common and complex illnesses and offers high quality primary care to adults and adolescents. Continuing care for patients is provided in the office, during hospitalization, and at long-term care facilities.
The practice of Internal Medicine also incorporates an understanding of wellness (disease prevention and health promotion), women's health, substance abuse, mental health, and medical ethics, as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system, and reproductive organs.
In order to provide my patients with the latest in health and wellness, my Integrative Medicine orientation draws upon all therapeutic systems to form a comprehensive approach to the art and science of medicine. It includes...
partnership between patient & physician in the healing process
appropriate use of conventional & alternative methods to facilitate the body's innate healing response
consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness & disease, including mind and body, spirit & community
a philosophy that neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative medicine uncritically
recognition that good medicine should be based in good science, inquiry driven & open to new paradigms

the broader concepts of promotion of health
& the prevention of illness as well as the treatment of disease
