WCM Network Physician (What is this?)

Personal Statement

I strive to create an empathetic and nonjudgmental environment in which I can offer patients of all socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds high quality, evidenced-based medical care. Treatments are tailored to an individual's needs and drawn from expert guidelines and recommendations. I believe in the importance of caring for the whole person, mind and body. This includes helping patients choose complementary therapies such as acupuncture or yoga as well as discussing diet, exercise and any personal or emotional concerns that may affect their health or well being.

Good care starts with being a good listener and respecting patients as people. As Maimonides said, "The physician should not treat the disease but the patient who is suffering from it."
