WELCOME! I appreciate your visit and the time you've taken to visit our website!
As a Family Medicine physician, I've had the joy and privilege of providing medical care to the citizens of the Mississippi Gulf Coast for 34 years.
Services provided are general medical care with an emphasis on primary and preventive health care, as well as chronic maintenance and some acute care.
I've also had the privilege of being able to make home visits on our seniors who are home-bound and to coordinate their care with home health and hospice agencies.
It is my aim to provide educational, and hopefully insightful, information that will assist in empowering you to make the changes or continue the improvements you've made in improving your health. My Blog is simply one physician's viewpoint of various medical and socioeconomic issues that hopefully will educate and inform, create awareness, and provide insight and understanding of the political, social, and economic influences that come to bear upon all of us as it pertains to achieving, accessing and maintaining good health.
Also, since the site was first published in July 2011 I've found that those topics that I've published to date vary between topics that have practical use and those that have a more personal yet non-medical flavor. I apologize for this inconsistency but the inspiration to write about certain topics wavers as much as the breeze coming off the Gulf. I'll be glad to address any issues of interest to you, but until or unless this happens I will continue as we are doing. Of course, I would appreciate your interest and input.
Again, thank you for visiting. I welcome your comments and suggestions.
