Practice Philosophy

My approach to medicine is to treat my patients as individuals, not as a number or statistic. I believe that your healthcare should be as unique and individualized as you are. By emphasizing a personal, collaborative approach to your care in a timely, unhurried, uninterrupted style, it allows my focus to remain on you, the patient.

As a board certified family physician serving Downingtown, Exton, West Chester, and other neighboring communities in Chester County, PA, I consider my patient care to focus not only on acute and chronic illness, but primarily on the preventative health aspect of your overall wellbeing. Through the use of leading edge tools and technology that emphasize wellness, prevention, early detection and highly personalized treatment, my aim is to empower my patients to make healthy choices and enjoy life.
