Event Description:
Almost one million American die of heart disease each year making it the leading cause of death in the U.S., but this does not have to be the case. Heart disease and stroke can be prevented. You are invited to a discussion on heart health to make you aware of risk factors of heart disease, including the effects of high blood pressure and cholesterol. We’ll learn how developing healthy habits related to nutrition, fitness, sleep and stress management can reduce your risk for heart disease and stroke. …..Additionally, we will discuss the challenges of navigating the current Health Care environment and how different Medical Practice models can benefit you, the patient.

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
I am board certified in internal medicine and have been practicing both internal medicine and primary care in Newtown, Connecticut for 35 years. My philosophy of practice has always been to put my patients’ care first which means that my visits are unhurried and thorough with a focus on early diagnosis, health maintenance and preventive care. My office incorporates a wellness center with programs that include physical assessments, exercise counseling and nutrition counseling. 

I care for patients with chronic disease and physical disabilities to bring them to their highest level of functioning in order to return to a full and active lifestyle. Our fitness programs are also utilized by patients who strive to achieve healthy living and well-being. We offer stress reduction groups as well. 

I believe that a close collaborative relationship should exist between the patient and the physician. We are a team working together to achieve the ideal outcomes for your ongoing health. MDVIP shares my philosophy of healthcare delivery and through my affiliation with the national leaders in personalized healthcare, I can further enhance the level of care I am able to provide to my patients.
