Don’t be your own enemy.
My best patients are the ones who understand that health is important. If that is you, you will begin your journey with me by saying: "I want to be healthy. I do [BLANK] to be healthy, but I know I'm not quite there yet because I still feel [BLOATED], [FATIGUED], [UNCOMFORTABLE], [IN PAIN], etc…" You understand that health is multifactorial. You want to be engaged, and actively participating in your health, remain open-minded, and want to ask questions. Understanding that I'm equally human, you will see me as a teammate working with you toward your health goals. At the end of the day, I need your participation more than anything.
I provide functional medical and naturopathic care for patients seeking an individualized and integrative approach to their healthcare. I am committed to providing comprehensive care, education, motivation and inspiration to my patients. This allows them to truly improve their health and not simply manage their disease. With a broad toolbox of therapies and laboratory investigation I am able to help my patients get to the root of their problem, understand the variables contributing and make actionable steps to help them overcome their health challenges.
Every day I work with patients who come in believing that they are never going to get better and that they have too much work to do. I have seen incredible improvements, changes, and successes. Feeling overwhelmed and lost? I can help direct you where you need to go: HEALTH!
