Our team is a tight-knit group that has worked together for years. We enjoy each other’s company inside and outside of work. We hope you can feel the positive atmosphere we try to maintain.

We believe that we have been greatly blessed. Many people have helped us on our individual and collective journey. In addition, we recognize that much of the world does not have access to the resources we enjoy daily, including some people in our own community. For that reason, we believe that giving back locally and globally is our responsibility. This has enhanced and given purpose to our lives and medical practice.
