Philosophy of Care
Family medicine is a specialty that gives me an opportunity to apply a broad knowledge of medicine to care for patients of all ages. Providing continuity of care for families is very rewarding. I usually become well-acquainted with my patients, which makes it easier to provide health counseling. I make it a point to reinforce my patients' good health habits, which involves encouraging them to pursue regular exercise, a balanced diet, and timely preventive health care. Listening and communicating are important skills for a physician. I want my patients to actively participate in all decisions pertaining to their health care. Our UC Davis Medical Group practice offers Roseville residents convenient, quality medical care, as well as access to a tremendous number of well-trained specialists for consultation or referral.
