Practice Philosophy: I developed a deep appreciation for people with different backgrounds and cultures as a result of growing up in parts of Canada and the United States, as well as living a number of years in Japan. I enjoy interacting with a diversity of people and this complements my desire to help patients as a primary care physician. My aim is to help patients lead healthy lifestyles and to make sure they have the information they need to make well-informed decisions.
