About My Practice

Your commitment to wellness doesn’t happen by chance…it happens by choice.

Timely office visits

You will be able to see me on the same day or within 24 hours of your call. Your appointment time will be honored and you will be seen promptly, in an unhurried fashion. I intend to ensure there will be ample opportunity to address your medical needs at each visit. In general, your annual wellness exam will be 60 minutes and all other appointments will be up to 30 minutes in length.

Direct communication with me during office hours (and after!)

During office hours, my staff will answer your calls directly and will assist you with your needs. I encourage my patients to call with any questions or concerns regarding their health. If consultation with me is needed and I am unable to speak with you immediately, I will return your call promptly. After office hours or on weekends and holidays, you can reach me directly on my cell phone for urgent issues at any time of the day or night whether you are at home or traveling.

Extended office hours

Office visits are best scheduled during normal office hours when the full complement of staff is available. However, should you require an occasional visit outside of my traditional office hours, I will do my best to accommodate you.

Adult dependent children of members are welcome

If a parent opts to join my concierge medicine practice, I will be happy to care for his/her adult dependent children between the ages of 18-26 without an additional annual fee.

Care for visiting family and friends

Should a family member or friend become ill during a visit to the Petaluma area, I will be happy to see them in my office and assist with prompt medical care as though they were a member of my concierge medicine practice.

Extending your endocrine care

I am board certified in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology. As an endocrine and internal medicine specialist, you will now not only receive my expertise in endocrinology, but also my full attention to your primary care needs. I have always preferred to take care of the whole patient – body, mind and spirit – as I believe these three entities should never be separated in the context of health and wellness.
