About

Bio

I am licensed to practice medicine by New York State. Aside from a special interest in Complementary Health Care I also have a strong interest in human rights due to my professional and personal position that respect for human rights is necessary to help nurture good health in body, mind and spirit!

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.
