I am trained in Family practice, board certified and re-certified a number of years ago. The first 10 years of practice were spent in military medicine fulfilling my obligation as a recipient of a military Scholarship. I then worked in Managed Care for the next 10 years.
The last 16 years I have been in private practice expanding and combining my knowledge in functional medicine, integrative health, genomics, traditional and anti aging medicine to provide my patients a more comprehensive approach to their healthcare.
I have embraced the principles of functional medicine, evaluating the complex interactions of genetic,
environmental, and lifestyle factors that influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. By incorporating a number of modalities including, dietary consultation, stress management, genomics, biochemical assessment of nutrient deficiencies, pharmacogenetics, optimization of the endocrine system, I create a program customized for the individual patient shifting the emphasis from the diagnosis and treatment of disease to the possibility of creating wellness.
