About

Bio

I am double board certified in through the American Board of Family Medicine and the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine. I hold certifications through the Institute of Functional Medicine and devote my career to that of Functional Medicine. Before completing my residency in Family Medicine at the Mayo Clinic, I worked at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the National Center for Environmental Health studying effects of pesticides and environmental pollutants on our human body. I currently live with my son and wife in Jacksonville, Florida and practice Functional Medicine. Functional Medicine is science based and attempts to uncover the roots of many chronic conditions that currently plaque our communities.

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.
