About

Bio

I am a family practice physician with over 15 years experience treating the whole person. I have additional training in Integrative Medicine through a fellowship at the University of Arizona Center for Integrative medicine. I have some tools of knowledge to share to empower you to feel better.

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.
