Philosophy of Care
What I truly appreciate about being a primary care physician is that I have the opportunity to know people over time through all the ups and downs of their lives. I have patients that I’ve delivered as babies, and then — years later — I’ve helped their moms and dads when they needed geriatric care. Having a long-term relationship with my patients is at the core of my practice, and something I consider a true privilege.

I’m glad to say that there’s more attention than ever being focused on primary care, and that falls right into line with my interests. We’re seeing lots of evidence that strong primary care leads to both higher quality and lower costs — and what could be more important these days?
Family comes first with me. But a close second is getting together with friends and having conversations about anything, from the most trivial to the deepest philosophy. I suppose if I didn’t practice medicine, I’d be a fishing guide. You can’t beat the peacefulness of standing in a river.
Patient Ratings and Comments
The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.
