“I started my private practice, Priority Care, to be the kind of doctor I always wanted to be, the kind everyone deserves. As a direct primary care physician, my patients’ visits aren’t rushed, and I’m always here for them when they need me most. My goal is to provide all of my patients with quality care, greater access, and better solutions all of the time.”

"Priority Care is such a unique practice because the team has worked together closely in the past, shares a common vision for affordable healthcare through patient advocacy, and has never grown too big to not know each patient personally. The number of patients in our care speaks volumes about the loyalty and rapport Priority Care has earned since 2019."
