About

Bio

This is not my job or my career, it's a passion. I do my best to honor those who have taught me by providing attentive care for the patient in my presence. The approach must be gestalt: medication (if neccessary) at the lowest effective dose, psychotherapy and lifestyle adjustments.

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.
