Welcome to my Web page.
I work in the Department of Continuing Care services. I am a family physician specializing in home-based care. I serve as the primary care physician for my members and I work hard to keep them well by visiting them at home. My professional interests include chronic disease management, preventive care, geriatrics, and palliative medicine. This is a new program for members requiring close monitoring. I enjoy helping members reach the highest level of health and fulfillment they can achieve. Working with members and their families is vital to achieving these goals. This includes exploring options for care, counseling about next steps, and listening to the unique needs and circumstances of each member.I’m married and have two children—one in middle school and one in high school. I participate in their extracurricular activities like Boy Scouts, cross country, karate, and church youth group. Weekends are usually very busy.
I work providing care at members' homes with a case manager, pharmacist, and social service staff. We work together as a team for each member to develop an individualized treatment plan. Members in the program may call anytime to have questions answered or request a follow-up visit. Our goal is to prevent health problems or catch and address them early to minimize the impact of illness and maximize health.
I like to hike, show ski, and kayak. When I can't get away, I walk on the treadmill or the elliptical machine while watching TV. In the morning I do a little yoga and stretching. This helps me relax.
