I’m a Family Medicine Physician practicing in Delaware County, PA.
I am dedicated to empowering you and your communities to becoming WELL – Whole, Energized, and Loving Life!
Through my experiences thus far, I’ve realized that medical information can sometimes be presented to patients in a very confusing and “jargon-like” manner.
I am NOT a big fan of that.
Health literacy (how much someone can understand health information) has become a very important topic to me, and I’ve found that as a physician, one of my larger duties is to make sure that people have a clear understanding of their own health, the health of their loved ones, and even the health “climate” of our nation and our world.
My goal is not to dispel every myth, is not to advertise or promote new medicines…
My goal is to open a door of communication between patient and physician, and to lower a curtain of confusion that may sometimes exist when a patient leaves their doctor’s office.
Often, it is not the fault of the physician that every diagnosis is not fully explained before they leave. There’s simply just not enough time. However, that does not mean that these diagnoses are not significant and should not be well understood by the patient.
Throughout the course of working on this blog, I hope to post about some of the latest and most relevant health topics.
Some will be related to what’s in the news today, others may be general topics that I encounter often as a family physician or simply as a human being. I hope to address topics that many people have common questions about.
I invite you to partake in this journey with me as we work on a well-informed and healthier lifestyle together!
