Comprehensive, full-spectrum care


Prenatal and Obstetrical Care

Comprehensive prenatal care with an individualized approach to delivery.  In too many practices, you will receive your prenatal care only to have the delivery assisted by another physician who has not had the pleasure of partnering with you, and caring for you, as you baby grows and develops.  As we like to say, "we know who will be delivery your baby, but do you?"

Newborn and Pediatric Care

Medical care of infants, children and adolescents.  In addition to addressing the various illnesses and injuries of childhood, the primary goal of pediatrics is assessing and ensuring appropriate growth and development.  Of particular focus in our office is the early detection of potential obstacles in your child's growth and development.

Adolescent Medicine

A medical subspecialty that focuses on care of patients who are in the adolescent period of development, generally ranging from the last years of elementary school until graduation from high school (some doctors in this subspecialty treat young adults attending college at area clinics, in the subfield of college health). Patients have generally entered puberty, which typically begins between the ages of 9 to 11 for girls, and 11 to 14 for boys.

Women's Health

Do you know the top women's health risks? Heart disease, cancer and stroke top the list. Although these are serious concerns, there's good news. Healthy lifestyle choices — such as eating a healthy diet and including physical activity in your daily routine — can go a long way toward reducing women's health risks.

For some women, breast health tops the list of women's health concerns. What's the best way to do a breast self-exam? What should you do if you find a breast lump? What's the best way to treat breast pain?

For others, women's health concerns include cosmetic surgery. And as you get older, your women's health concerns are likely to change. Could belly fat lead to health problems? Are Kegel exercises really necessary? Get answers to these and other women's health questions in an individualized approach.

Men's Health

Do you know the top men's health threats? The list is surprisingly short — including heart disease, cancer and unintentional injury. Thankfully, most men's health threats are largely preventable. Make healthy lifestyle choices, such as eating a healthy diet and including physical activity in your daily routine. It's also important to manage risky behavior, such as drinking too much and engaging in casual sex. Of course, common-sense precautions — such as using safety ladders and wearing a seat belt — count, too.

As you get older, your men's health concerns are likely to change. Could a beer gut lead to health problems? Is male menopause a myth or a true men's health issue? Could testosterone therapy help you feel young again? Get answers to these and other men's health questions in an individualized approach.

Geriatric Medicine

A sub-specialty of internal medicine and family medicine that focuses on health care of the elderly or, as we prefer to say, our "seasoned and experienced".  It aims to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults.  There is no set age at which patients may be under the care of a geriatrician or geriatric physician, a physician who specializes in the care of elderly people. Rather, this decision is determined by the individual patient's needs, and the availability of a specialist.

Minor Surgery

Skin tag removal and biopsies, skin cysts and abscesses, warts (Verruca) destruction treatment, mole removal, biopsy of growths, benign skin nevi, hairy moles, molluscum warts, penile and vaginal warts, hemorrhoid excision treatment, in-grown toenails, pre-cancerous and cancerous skin lesions, laceration repair of skin and soft tissue, joint injections, trigger point injections, pilonidal cyst drainage, burn treatment, foreign body removal and much more.

Osteopathy

While viewing the body as more than the sum of it's parts, each patient encounter is viewed through the "eyes of osteopathy".  Visit this page for more information about Osteopathy

Integrative and Holistic Medicine

Integrative medicine as an emerging medical specialty that incorporates:

  • caring for the whole person – body, mind, and spirit – to treat and prevent disease and
  • empowering patients to create a condition of optimal health. Both outside and inside the medical profession, this concept of medicine of the whole person is gathering increasing support.

Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy or “proliferative injection therapy” involves injecting an irritant solution (typically concentrated sugar, fish oil or dilute phenol) into specific areas of the body, generally at the insertion points of tendons and ligament, for the purpose of strengthening weakened connective tissue. By strengthening the weakened connective tissue, musculoskeletal pain is often relieved.  Visit this page for more information about prolotherapy as well as the American Osteopathic Association of Prolotherapy Regenerative Medicine and American Association of Orthopaedic Medicine: AAOM
