About

Bio

Hi! I am a doctor because I have an intense desire to help figure out problems with their health, and assist them in making changes to improve their wellbeing. As a surgeon, that sometimes involves operations, but more often than not, my role is a "puzzle solver" and a coordinator -- taking pieces of information that don't seem to connect, and using them like a jigsaw puzzle to see the answer!

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.

Hi, thanks. I know it doesn't directly lead to PD, I'm concerned because it seems to be a common presenting symptom, ~2 yrs in advance of PD symptoms.

This is why I am recommending dr's ask about nicotine intake on their questionnaires. I was vaping so said no to smoking. I quit at 1st THR.
