On September 16, 2008 I became a MDVIP affiliated physician. MDVIP is the national leader in preventive, personalized and wellness-focused medicine committed to setting the gold standard of primary care in the U.S.  The MDVIP model frees me and my patients from the current constraints of the healthcare system by offering a new level of highly personalized healthcare, focused on physician-directed prevention, wellness and early detection.

Specifically, as a MDVIP affiliated physician I have limited my practice to a maximum of 600 primary care patients, (as compared with an average of 2,500 in traditional primary care models). This provides me with the time to practice medicine the way I envisioned. I am able to deliver better care with proven better outcomes and fewer hospitalizations for my patients.  

I will continue to see patients that have been referred to me for pulmonary related problems and new pulmonary consults.
