Philosophy of Care
I believe in helping families make sustained lifestyle changes that support great health. The vast majority of the conditions I see can be very well treated with a nutritious diet and physical activity. As a trained chef, I love delicious, flavorful food and believe that healthy food can always taste great. My patients are far more likely to leave my office with a recipe than with a prescription!
