My approach, as an integrative practitioner, is to treat the whole person and get to the root cause of any problem or disease to improve our patient's quality of life. My practice of medicine realizes that our body systems all work together and are affected by the food we eat, the toxins we encounter, and the stress we face. I may use both natural supplements and pharmaceuticals depending on the situation.
I am a non-traditional physician having begun medical school at age 34 after a career as a human factors / cockpit design engineer at Boeing and McDonnell Douglas. The State of Arizona gave me a WICHE scholarship to attend osteopathic medical school in Missouri. After returning to Arizona to complete my internship and residency in osteopathic family and manipulative medicine at Midwestern University, I opened Lakeview Family Medicine at Val Vista Lakes in Gilbert, AZ. After 7 years and incredible growth, we needed a bigger facility. We moved to our current location at the Mesa / Gilbert border near the US 60 and Higley. Our new office, Full Circle Health, is almost 4000 sq/ft, allowing us to better serve our patients. I am personally into fitness, and anti-aging medicine My emphasis has evolved from sick care to wellness and preventative medicine. I have advanced training in bio-identical hormones, and cosmetic medicine. I enjoy working with pilots from all over the world as an Senior Aviation Medical Examiner and HIMS AME.
