About

Bio

I'm a retired colon and rectal surgeon, who now practices holistic medicine. My focus is on chronic bowel issues such as constipation, bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion. I also coach physicians and other medical personnel to help them re-engage and feel vital in their practice.

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.
