to enjoy things in life so much more. Let's work together to take on your health issues head-on
or if you're feeling tip-top, maintain the great health you have today.
Following are some of the ways we will collaborate on a healthy you:
Comprehensive Assessment of Your Health from Then to Now
We will spend our first visit going through your family, personal and medical history.
including physical exam, and lab tests. This will help uncover patterns or set points where your wellness has gone off track. Or, if you're not currently having issues, identifying areas you may want to address
now to be proactive in your long-term good health.
Personalized Vitality Plan
Once I know your history and learn about your goals, from feeling better to managing stress
or excelling as an athlete, we will create a program customized to your needs.
Addressing Nutritional Needs
Through our testing, microbiome, micronutrient, omega 3/6/9 and looking at oxidative stress,
we will find identity nutritional issues that may contribute to the root cause of your issues.
Tired of being tired? There are a multitude of reasons why you might be dragging and it might not be
what you think. Possibilities range from undiagnosed autoimmune thyroid to lack of B vitamins and iron, vitamin D deficiency, sleep issues, stress or a hormone imbalance. Let's work together so you
can enjoy every waking moment to its fullest.
Weight Loss and Management
There is more to losing and keeping off weight than moving more and eating less. Your personal story
will unlock and reveal the issues so you can find the right body composition balance -
fat to muscle ratio - for your body.
50% of adults have a chronic disease and many have just "learned to live with it" or pop a pill
which simply masks the symptom instead of treating the cause which may lead to worse health problems down the road. Many chronic diseases have an underlying issue with inflammation and often the gut.
We will determine the cause(s) of your condition and how you to best treat it. May be one or more tactics such as diet, stress management, supplements or other personalized solutions.
Brain Fog/Cognitive Issues
Its hard to be at peak performance when you think straight. The roadmap to great brain health
is through great mitochondrial health and reducing inflammation. We will talk through what mitochondria are (they are fascinating) and how you can optimize their number and function.
Are you a medical doctor?Yes. I am board-certified family doctor. I received my MD at Rush Medical College in Chicago.

I have over 17 years experience working as a family physician at John Muir Medical, One Medical, Crossover Health on Apple and Facebook campuses, and at Pacific Pearl in LaJolla.
Do you prescribe medication?Yes,. When needed, I prescribe medications. I believe in having the best blend of medicine, supplements and l lifestyle changes to achieve optimal health and wellness.
Do you accept insurance?I provide you a superbill for you to provide to your Health Savings or insurance provider. A superbill is a form used by medical practitioners and clinicians so we can quickly complete and submit the procedure(s) and diagnosis(s) for a patient visit for reimbursement.
What payment options are available?I accept Visa and MasterCard.
How much will my treatment cost?The initial visit is $350.00. Follow up visits are $225. each. Payment is due on reciept of service.
How will I know if functional medicine will work for me?Functional medicine is for anyone who is struggling with a chronic disease, fertility issues, lack of energy or if you just want to optimize your good health to prevent disease in the future. It's for anyone who wants to learn about about their body and be an active participant in their health. It's for those who are tired with the status quo where they have little to no relationship with their doctor and they never fully understand how to empower themselves to heal and live healthy lives. I combine your history with today's advanced technology to determine the root case of your problem and develop the appropriate solution customized to your needs.
Do I have to see you in person for my initial evaluation? What about follow-up appointments?For the best experience, having a visit in person at least once, will be very beneficial. All other follow up appointments can be virtual.
