About

Bio

I am a very athletic, young in spirit, handiwork of God, who has enjoyed a quarter of century of highly technical work on the human heart, lungs and arteries. My initial interest in college was chemistry, and I have gone back to that first love, understanding and treating the chemical disorders of the mind and of the substances that 23 million americans are addicted to. From opiates, nicotine, to benzos and cocaine. My new field of work has allowed me more time to exercise, run, bike, and spend time with my family, doing the same. I hope that my work and life experiences may be helpful to others in this new mode of medical communication and education and that it can lead to an elimination of insurance companies or at least reduce the barriers created between physicians and patients.
