About the Practice
I founded Echelon-Health because I wanted to spend more time with my patients, and less time with insurance companies and the government. Although I enjoy practicing medicine, that is not the primary reason I became a sports and family physician. What I really enjoy is getting to know my patients and their families on a personal level, and having a positive impact on their lives. I believe my patients’ health is their most valuable asset, and my goal is to keep them as healthy as possible.

As a family doctor with specialty training in sports medicine, my practice philosophy incorporates nutrition, fitness, and medicine. Echelon-Health is a direct relationship between patient and physician. We exist for the benefit of that relationship and none other. Echelon-Health does not have a large corporate parent and is not contracted with third-parties to provide medical services to patients (like a typical insurance-based practice). We run an efficient practice that minimizes costs and maximizes value in a way that is impossible with an insurance-based medical practice.

Echelon-Health is private, personalized, and affordable. We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions, and we welcome any additional questions. If you are looking for a change from the typical primary care practice, or you need a new doctor, then perhaps Echelon-Health is right for you.
