Practice Philosophy

As a Christian doctor I believe that God has the ultimate power and control over human lives and health; therefore I continually rely on him for guidance and strength as I perform my duties. I practice Western medicine with great emphasis on prevention (i.e. evaluating your risk of developing health problems). I completely disagree with the notion that one should only go to the doctor when sick. It is dangerous and outdated to think that way. I strongly believe that knowledge is power, therefore I provide my patients with adequate information to facilitate their involvement in health care. I utilize any available resources including referrals in order to provide you the best care. The use of electronic medical record saves a lot of time and minimizes error. That combined with a smaller practice enables me to provide a personal, safe and better quality of medical care.

Family Medicine is a medical field that emphasizes disease prevention and health maintenance,  it focuses on over all well-being and optimal management of illnesses both individually and as a member of a family. This approach gives the health care provider  an excellent opportunity to care for patients.

Because family practice emphasizes the family as well as the individual patient, family practice physicians care for all ages and family members.

A broad range of services are also needed by families.  At Rapha Family Medicine we try to meet those needs. We offer adult and  pediatric primary care services as well as basic gynecology services.
