About

Bio

I specialize in wellness, aka integrative,functional, preventive, & anti-aging medicine, as well as nutrition, and bio-identical hormones. I treat men, women, and children and look for the underlying cause of symptoms and disease, rather than masking symptoms with drugs, which is typical medical school training.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
