About

Bio

I am a biopsychosocial physician integrating not only the biological aspects of medical care but always being cognizant of the psychological and social circumstances which many times either can help, hinder or even worsen our treatment or our maintenance of health or that of a speedy recovery. I treat the whole and not individual body parts believing that it is the orchestration of our being and our systems that is above all and most important. I enjoy the marriage of eastern and western medical treatment always striving to find the best fit for a given individual patient so that compliance of treatment is maximized. I love what I do and Live what I do and get inspired and inspire. I would choose no other job!
