Board Certification in anti-aging metabolic medicine along with rheumatology allows me to look for and find the very root of the disease and help my patients to deal with it in an optimal way. I am proud of the excellent care we are privileged to provide to our patients since we address body as a whole - the physical, emotional and psychological aspects of bodily functions.
