Practice Philosophy

My staff and I aim to SOLVE problems for patients, not create problems for patients. We clearly give recommendations, and provide logic for them .

All our patients are provided my home and cell numbers for urgent or emergent issues.

In the Diabetes Realm, the main focus of my practice , our primary goal is to achieve excellent glycemic control in order to reduce complication risks, but without hypoglycemia or weight gain ; in fact, we aim for weight loss. I write and publish on my processes of care, often well ahead of others in the field. As the condition can affect the whole body, we try to care for the whole patient, yet understand our limitations and refer as needed.
