My Practice

I am fortunate to have located my practice in the Red Willow Health and Healing Center here in Missoula. I work collaboratively with my physician and the other health care providers in the center who are non-allopathic healers. I can also consult with one of my ayurvedic teachers when faced with a challenge. I provide appropriate referrals when needed. I see babies and children, adolescents and adults. I see people with acute problems such as a sore throat and provide on-going care for those with chronic disease. I provide annual exams for men and women, well and sick child visits, sports physicals, employment physicals and visits for many other reasons. Ayurvedic consults are also available for those interested in this option of care.

I do not provide injections of any sort(immunizations/vaccines), minor surgical procedures or blood draws in the office. I am able to refer patients for these services.

As of Jan 1, 2012 I will be accepting insurance at my office. I am a participant with Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Allegiance and many other health plans. Please bring your insurance card and co-payment to your visit. Labs will be billed directly to insurance. For those without insurance, I strive to keep my fees affordable and payment in full is due at your visit. I accept Medicaid but not Medicare at this time.

Many of my appointment times are as long as an hour as I believe this allows me and my patients to really get to know one another. I believe this time allows me to fully elicit the patient’s health as well as social issues and possible barriers to achieving better health. I am here to help you in your health care by educating you as much as I can and giving you options to pursue. I truly want my patients to be in a collaborative relationship with me and to have an interest in being pro-active in their care. This type of engagement is more rewarding for patients and leads to better health outcomes.

I look forward to seeing both old and new patients. Please contact me at 406-240-0604 for more information or to schedule an appointment. Here’s to great health!!!
