As a functional medicine and anti-aging specialist, I approach medicine with a different paradigm. Instead of simply treating symptoms, which I do treat, I also do a detailed search for the root causes of those symptoms. This approach is individualized and is truly no one size does fits all. Furthermore, I emphasize the importance of lifestyle and diet/nutrition in each patient's health and wellness. Optimal health is not just the absence of disease.
