Board Certified Internal Medicine

The world of medical care is complicated and confusing. Once upon a time it was hard to find medical information.  Now we are bombarded with so much it is hard to know what to believe.  My role is to be your personal medical advisor and first line medical resource. I am here to make sure you get the best medical care.  I believe in educating my patients and forming a partnership to deal with the simplest to the most serious medical problems.  But as the saying goes "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" and I put that into practice every day with my patients.

I am truly excited about the revolution happening in medicine at the moment lead by the American College of Lifestyle Medicine.  The American public and the medical profession have been so enthralled by the technological and drug achievements of modern medicine we have lost sight of the fact that preventing disease in the first place is the biggest prize of all.  Over seventy percent of modern diseases are not only preventable by diet and lifestyle changes they can be reversed.  Patients are amazed when I tell them they can reverse their diabetes, eliminate their high blood pressure and reverse their coronary artery disease.  This is well proven in the medical literature.  The problem is this message has never gotten out to the public because of media apathy and the way of medicine is practiced in the USA.  I aim to be part of this new change in medicine and to make my patients healthier, happier and with fewer medications.  Please come and join me for one of my Wednesday afternoon and seminars so I can give you the facts.
