About

Bio

I practice Holistic medicine combining the best of mainstream, complimentary, herbal and nutritional therapies in a concierge style. I love to work my patients off of medications over time as they no longer need them. At MEDAC PC we are creating a whole new Paradigm in Medicine that gives anyone that wants it access to VIP medicine with no waiting time and with direct access to their physician via cell phone 24/7.

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.
