Broadway Medical Clinic “has heart”–it’s a friendly and a personable clinic, where everyone seems (at least to me) to be relaxed and happy! It is the perfect place for me to let down my guard with patients and get to know them on a personal level.
My practice philosophy? Making patients feel comfortable talking to me is my goal with every visit! I do enjoy talking to patients and have been known to share my sense of humor if the context is right!
I like the variety that practicing general medicine provides, and try to practice "cost effective" medicine, asking for the patient's input before ordering tests and being honest about the value of testing for their clinical circumstances. I often encourage lifestyle or diet changes before prescribing medications for a medical condition, if appropriate, and almost always initially prescribe "generic" over brand name medications--unless I think there is a difference.
Being a believer in universal health care , I don't discriminate against patients based on their insurance and will try to see "almost anybody".
Outside of the practice of medicine, I enjoy birdwatching, backpacking, whitewater river rafting, my three kids and my cat!
