About

Bio

I'm a board certified internist who's been in practice since 1979. During that time I've worked with several thousand patients with a wide variety of medical problems. Since 2001 I decided I could better serve my patients by using an "integrative" approach to care. I recommend non-drug alternatives whenever possible, safe and effective. Yet if a medication is the best treatment option, I will certainly utilize it. I also use a preventive approach in treating my patients in the hopes that they can lead long, healthy and productive lives. All of my current patients truly appreciate this approach. In addition to my clinical practice, I've conducted research trials with nutraceuticals and herbal formulations. I've won awards from the Scripps annual integrative medical research competition.

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.
