Michael is a family nurse practitioner. He is a primary care provider for children and adults.
Michael loves building meaningful relationships with his patients. In the exam room, he gives his undivided attention as he listens to your concerns. He believes healthcare is a choice and his job as your healthcare provider is to collaborate and help with shared-decision making.
Michael uses his skill, knowledge and compassion to treat acute illnesses and help manage chronic medical conditions. He most commonly treats upper respiratory and sinus infections, high blood pressure, joint pain, depression, anxiety, Type 2 diabetes, Vitamin D deficiency, high cholesterol, thyroid disorders, and gastroesophageal reflux.
Michael also provides preventative screenings. As he says, if you never change the oil or rotate the tires, the car is likely going to have some problems down the road. Prevention is a ‘cure’ for many illnesses and diseases before we get them.
