My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
Enjoying excellent health and feeling good about oneself can be achieved with proper guidance and encouragement. This is why my patients are treated with a personal, light touch, state-of-the art and time-tested preventive medicine approach. The teamwork approach, working hand in hand with patients, helps them achieve their individual goals. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments that start on time.
As a board certified internal medicine physician and a registered dietitian, I provide comprehensive care in the Philadelphia area to patients with a variety of disorders such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I am able to provide the quality of care and friendly bedside manner that my patients have come to expect.
