About

Bio

Graduate of the University of Maryland with a residency in Emergency Medicine at The University of Louisville. Now have  over  3 decades practicing primary care with the emphasis on emergency medicine, and family practice. Graduate of  a year's study of acupuncture for physicians from the American Acupuncture Association, headed by Dr. Joseph Helms at the time in 1992.My particular interests are in holistic health care, role of exercise and nutrition in disease prevention and treatment, experientially based cancer survival techniques, and individual based wellness techniques. My approach utilizes both proven and, as yet, unproven modalities to effect these changers . I believe in the latent powers of the human mind to be most influential in both disease prevention as well as disease creation. My feeling this way directs my using a broad range of consultants in a wide range of fields to enable the changes I and my patients so desire.Lastly, I feel strongly that the technological revolution taking place in the world today can and must be incorporated in the practice of medicine, if we as a species are to survive into the near future and beyond. I look with must excitement and anticipation for the high-tech techniques and devices that will allow us to become the practitioners of tomorrow;  especially given the growing population in need vs. the ever decreasing numbers of those capable of providing the needs required.....
