    Physician Bio

    As a board certified general internist I have been on staff at St. Joseph's Hospital for 29 years. My main areas of interest are geriatrics and preventative medicine. I strive for patient satisfaction and quality medical care by maintaining an "Old School" approach of spending more time with our patients, and not using physician extenders. I'd much rather look my patient in the eyes than engage my computer. My older patients often tell me how rare this is becoming, and greatly appreciate this..
