I work with my patients as a part­ner­ship to come up the best plan for their health. I am a good lis­ten­er who works with you to find the best meth­ods to stay healthy. I feel lifestyle is the key to good health and improve­ment in lifestyle is the focus of my care.

Clinical Interests

The pri­ma­ry empha­sis of my prac­tice is pre­ven­tion of chron­ic dis­ease. My focus is to teach my patients lifestyle changes in order to obtain and main­tain good health. I pre­fer to reach for med­ica­tions as a last resort. It is my firm belief that most of our chron­ic ail­ments are due to con­sum­ing too many high car­bo­hy­drate, processed foods and being inac­tive. I have been able to sig­nif­i­cant­ly help patients with weight issues and blood sug­ar prob­lems. Since 2010 I have been assist­ing patients var­i­ous approach­es, includ­ing low carb, keto and car­ni­vore diets. Dur­ing that time I have been fol­low­ing a keto diet myself. 

Personal Interests

I love trav­el. I play piano and the gui­tar in my free time. I also enjoy being active with var­i­ous forms of exer­cise. Addi­tion­al, I enjoy my two grandsons.
