" I believe everyone has greatness within. As a physician, I strive to help my clients to better understand the impact of their daily choices and create an impetus for healthy change. If I can inspire just one person at a time to push harder towards their own personal best then I have done my job.
As an avid marathoner, I know the benefits and pleasures that come from being fit. There is no greater feeling than being among a sea of thousands of other runners all with the same goal - crossing the finish line.
Some of my greatest insights have occurred during long training runs and races. It is during those 'running highs' that my purpose and passions come true."

HMR Gold Standard Certificate of Achievement
Valley View Hospital was recently designated as a recipient of the 2009 HMR Gold Standard Certificate of Achievement. This award distinguishes VVH from hundreds of clinics nationwide using the program for weight loss developed by Health Management Resources (HMR), a national healthcare company.
HMR recognizes programs that demonstrate excellence in performance and patient care by presenting Gold Standard Certificates annually to a select group of clinics across the nation. Certificates are awarded in categories such as greatest weight-loss rates, outstanding group attendance, and best weight maintenance data. HMR Programs nationwide submit clinical data in these areas and the top programs are presented with the HMR Gold Standard Certificate of Achievement.
Valley View Hospital's HMR Program offers a comprehensive approach to weight loss that includes in-depth lifestyle education, personal coaching, and the option of medically supervised treatment. With both in-clinic and at-home weight-loss options, the clinic has serviced hundreds of individuals.
