About

Bio

I am originally born and raised in Kenya and where my extended family still live. My medical training was in Glasgow, Scotland and thereafter, I trained in internal medicine in London, UK. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of the UK. My career has also taken me to Stanford University for Rheumatology training and then to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. I am deeply interested in complementary and integrative medicine as many therapeutics which are not considered conventional can assist people with chronic conditions such as arthritis.

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.
