General Practice & Internal Medicine

Our current practice is out-patient only; this gives ample time to evaluate and suggest a personalized program for health improvement.  The office is in a simple, relaxed setting in a residential area.

Communications and follow-up can be through phone, letters, email and/or fax for some patients. This may be helpful for out-of-area patients after initial evaluation.
