I am a Research Scientist and Internist at heart. I have been fortunate to have the extensive training and access to some of the most sophisticated technology available to help cancer patients. Over the years in my practice, I have met so many patients who have inspired me to expand my knowledge, looking into advanced conventional therapies as well as the influence of nutrition, supplements, and variously alternative therapies to achieve a whole person approach to medicine and preventative healthcare.

To my current and future patients... I wish to say thank you for allowing me to join your on your life Journey.
