About

Bio

I believe we should be well in spirit, soul and body. I believe that even though our physical bodies are weak, our inner being can be renewed day by day. Community is extremely important for general health and it takes a village to raise a child. We should get enough rest, not eat to late at night and live a healthy, active live. Fear, anxiety and stress are the roots behind many "chronic" western diseases.

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.
