Practice philosophy

I do my best to involve individuals in their own health decisions and like when individuals bring in things they have read elsewhere or have seen on the Internet.

I believe an educated patient is better equipped to make healthy decisions. It also makes my job easier.

Special interests, activities

The use of information technology (computers) to improve the practice of medicine and to help everyone become more informed about their health
