About

Bio

I focus on the prevention of cancer and cardiovascular disease, treatment of lipid disorders, hypertension and mood disorders. I'm also versed in dermatological procedures, including biopsy and removal of unwanted growths, pre-cancerous and cancerous skin lesions, as well as Botox and Juvederm.

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 40-year-old male asked:

Allergies possible: When there is fluid behind the eardrum this can cause a sense of congestion, crackling ears and at times severe dizziness or headache. Allergies are commonly the cause and draining the ears internally by using some guaifenisin at 1200mg twice daily and some loratadine or other antihistamine can help significantly. Sinus infection can ensue if the fluid remains undrained.

Hormonal changes : Can include under- or over active thyroid, changes in insulin/blood sugar regulation, changes in estrogen, progesterone or testosterone or the the stress hormones, particularly cortisol and DHEA. All of these can affect your cycle and your weight. See a doctor to have your hormones evaluated, including thyroid and insulin. Premenopause can also begin as early as 35.

Yes, Infected gums: Can lead to infection in the adjacent bones, if left untreated. This is called osteomyelitis and is very serious. Gum disease has also been linked to other systemic diseases, such as atherosclerosis and heart disease.
