This is a lifestyle health clinic. We emphasize the need for proper nutrition and physical activity as the basic foundation for good health. It is estimated 95% of medical visits and 75% of medical costs are due to lifestyle choices. If we detect the possibility that you are out of shape or malnourished, these points will dominate our approach to your visit. Be prepared, as this may limit the number of your concerns addressed in one visit. Unaddressed issues can be addressed on subsequent visits. Remember: bring your exercise and nutrition plan in mind!

I was born in New York City to a Mexican American mother from Texas and a father from Spain. I grew up overseas as a "missionary kid," and graduated from high school in East Africa. Later I did college and med school in Minneapolis/St. Paul. Life comes full circle and now I'm living down the road from where my mom was born; in Gonzales. Favorite hobby right how: I am obsessed with fitness and lifestyle health. I have turned fifty and I'm shooting for 50 more. Your health and well-being is as much a concern to me as is my own. Join me on this journey. Feel good and live long!
