About

Bio

I have a Radiology practice with special interest in Neuro Imaging and Arthrography with CT and MR, supplemented with 3D reconstructions. I am interested in second Opinions for CT and MR studies. Additionally, I have been disappointed with many surgical procedures and outcomes for many musculoskeletal injuries. I also have an interest in the treatment of pain such as joint pain, foot pain, tendonitis, and neuropathy, and have developed treatment programs that can improve symptoms using natural reflexes and the Principles of Intrinsic Medicine.

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.

Holistic Medicine

Nuclear Medicine
