About

Bio

I am an osteopathic family physician with an interest in osteopathic manipulative treatment and chronic pain management I recently retired after 25 years in the Navy, where I served as a flight surgeon and family physician. I have had the opportunity to care for patients in the US, including Alaska; Japan, Afghanistan, Italy, Germany, and Korea. Currently, I am working in Urgent Care and have a small solo practice in Coupeville, WA.

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.

A 39-year-old female asked:

Nerve compression: A nerve may be compressed somewhere between your elbow and the spine. Most likely in the brachial plexus, a complex of nerves under the shoulder; or near where the cervical nerve exits the vertebra in your neck. Most commonly from tight muscles, but also may be from a bulging disc, arthritis, or rarely a tumor. If the sensation does not resolve with stretching and rest, see your doctor.

Bowel cramps: During defecation (pooping), the rectum squeezes the stool out and the colon contents move further from right to left in your abdomen. Trapped gas and large amounts of stool can result in cramping.

Be patient: For the first couple months after starting Depo Provera, (medroxyprogesterone) you may continue to have a light period, even breaking through at two weeks. After time the lining of the uterus thins and bleeds less and less, resulting in very light or no periods.
