About

Bio

I went into my field because I recognized that lifestyle modification is how people can make an enduring difference in the state of their health. In my practice I try to help people replace medications with food, exercise, and other lifestyle choices. I enjoy helping people with all sorts of problems set goals, achieve them, and set higher goals. Nothing is more satisfying than getting someone who had a disability to overcome their challenges and get back to life, health, and the pursuit of happiness. I am Board Certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. I enjoy practicing all aspects of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, including electrodiagnostics. Because of the nature of my field and practice I do need a referral from your primary care physician in order to treat you. (:

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.
