About

Bio

I would like to try and share my little knowledge and information acquired in medical practice over the years seeing patients.I would first recommend lifestyle changes.we are sick today because of bad food,unhealthy habits,addictions and lack of exercise.I want everyone to move in the right direction by not just reading and listening but by implementing changes in their lives to see the difference it makes by doing so. "One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine"-William Osler(1849-1919) described as the Father of Modern Medicine.
