Care Philosophy

I believe the body is self healing and the physicians role is to stimulate that inherent self healing process through all the modalities of treatment that are available. The physicians role is direct the healthcare team find the best treatments are care that is possible for each individual patient.

    Three incidents over the past 2 years that have effected my health. Over use of medication. DO but does not practice as DO. Prescribed medication that effected my legs. Misdiagnosed gallbladder problem that I had to have removed a month later. Medical Assistant attempted to irrigate my ears-kept pumping cold water in my ears - left me unattended in room during the procedure. I got vertigo, began vomiting and fell hit my head and had seizure and 24 stitches required to my injury.Very upset!
