About

Bio

I'm a board-certified family physician and a member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. I use my knowledge of scientific medicine to help people make the best choices when it comes to treating chronic conditions with changes in diet, exercise or simple fixes to problems. We run regular classes at my wellness and medical center in Henderson, Nevada. Feel free to call us at 702-754-4900.

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.
