"Holistic Primary Care for the Whole Family"

I entered medical school later in life than most medical students. I had spent time after college out in the real world: working with kids, working in a bookstore, managing a natural foods department. While working in natural foods, I heard many people say they were dissatisfied with their doctors, but I realized that the problem more often than not was miscommunication. I had been contemplating going to medical school, and this realization helped that decision gel. I resolved that rather than complain from the outside, I would become a doctor and see if there was a different way to practice that would allow me to spend the time I needed to communicate with patients and find the best way to keep them healthy. In order to keep people healthy, I knew they would need more than just medications, more than what is taught in medical school. Health is not just the absence of disease, but maximizing and retaining the function we have.
