“The amazing thing about medicine is that it’s not just the physiology and biology that matters; that isn’t the totality of your health. The heart and soul of every patient I see tells me as much about their ailments and struggles as the answers hidden in their bodies. I tell every new patient who walks in my door that we are on a road to optimal health. It is not a pill, it’s not a quick fix, and I work as a detective, guide and ally alongside each of you to discover what is blocking your way to the fullest chance at healing and balance. It’s about bringing science to the art of healing. Above all else, I see myself as the old-school family doctor, here to guide and inspire people to live a healthier and more heartful life.”
