I enjoy involving my patients in their own care. I have found that when people are more engaged in their health care that their outcomes are improved and it easier for me to do my job. I push prevention and aggressive management of diabetes, with the most up to date medicines that address blood sugar but also promote weight loss. I love taking care of entire families and multiple generations.
