Frequently Asked Questions

My goal is to provide the highest quality medical care and service, emphasizing a proactive, comprehensive approach to both disease prevention and wellness.  I will aggressively attempt to prevent medical illnesses before they occur.  These services will be provided in a relaxed, professional setting.  I want you to be completely satisfied with every aspect of your care.

I have limited the size of my practice so I can devote more time to each patient’s care and individual needs. This practice model allows me to schedule 30 minutes for routine appointments and approximately 60 minutes for the annual exam. Appointments start promptly, and as your personal doctor, I am able to spend more time with you. If a problem requires extra time for evaluation, I will reasonably accommodate you to the best of my ability. Also, our communication will be enhanced through a patient-dedicated cell phone and email.

My office is located at 14378 Woodlake Dr., Chesterfield, MO 63017

Should you desire, I am available to help you decide which specialist to see and to coordinate such consultations.  In this way the most appropriate resource is used, the earliest arrangements are made, and your applicable medical information is sent in advance of your specialist visit.

Yes.  Paying your annual fee allows you to be a member of my practice whether you are sick or well.  I strongly encourage you to utilize the benefits offered, regardless of your state of health, to proactively safeguard your health.

In order to provide this superior level of service and personalized attention, my practice has a limited enrollment and there is an annual fee. Membership informational packets are available which thoroughly explains my practice. If you would like to receive a packet, please feel free to contact me.
