About Us

Meet our team at the Center for Adult and Pediatric Wellness! Please take a few moments to learn about our skilled practitioners and our friendly, nurturing staff.

At the Center for Adult and Pediatric Wellness, we consider it both a great joy and responsibility to care for entire families. Most of us are parents ourselves, so we strive to be understanding and available to the families we are privileged to serve. We are honored that you have chosen us as the primary medical provider for you or your loved one and are confident that you will be pleased with the quality of care and service that we can provide you and your family.

A vital part of our service begins with our compassionate staff who work hard to manage and maintain a professional, caring and supportive environment for our patients in a timely manner. Our doctor is a lifelong learner. Not only has he received advanced medical training in both internal medicine and pediatrics, he continually pursues ongoing education to stay abreast of the latest in child and adult health care, as well as obesity management.

Your family's health is as important to us as it is to you. We look forward to providing you with excellent medical care that you or your loved one deserves.
