About

Bio

I was born and raised in Athens Greece coming to the US at age 20. I did my Undergraduate work at University of Maryland and Med school at University of New England. After finishing my 3 year Internal Medicine Residency at Christina Hospital in DE, I practiced as a Hospitalist for 7 years at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center in Myrtle Beach SC. I then joined the USAF where I served as a Flight Surgeon for 3 years and was subsequently accepted at a prestigious Fellowship program in Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound care. I served as a Hyperbaric Med Clinic Director for 2 years at Travis AFB in CA. I have now decided to separate from active duty, to join the Air National Guard in GA. Private practice will include Internal Medicine and Hyperbarics/ Wound care

This made me feel good. Thanks! I was worried because I heard it sticks in fat cells which I unfortunately have a lot of. Do you think this will happen with me and delay the process?
