Personal Statement

I am a board-certified family medicine physician with over 37 years of practice experience.

Over the course of time, I have developed a keen interest and have gained substantial experience in functional/integrative medicine. Most of my conventional medicine experience has been in the areas of occupational medicine and urgent care.

  • In this telemedicine practice, I will primarily focus on providing assessment and management of patients interested in potentially being prescribed a clinical trial of Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN).
  • Patients interested in this service must purchase a one month or 3 month membership.
  • Ongoing prescriptions and refills will require an ongoing membership through the duration of the prescription. For example a 90 day supply of medication will require their membership subscription to be valid till the end of the 90 days.
  • At this time I will not be providing general integrative medicine assessments.

LDN is a compounded oral prescription medication that has shown promising results in various conditions and has piqued the interest of researchers and patients alike.

This off-label use of the medication has shown potential in modulating the immune system and reducing inflammation, making it beneficial in a wide range of conditions.

LDN has been explored as a treatment option for autoimmune disorders, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and other inflammatory conditions.

With my experience in family medicine and functional/integrative medicine, I bring a holistic perspective to patient care.

I strongly believe in the integration of conventional and complementary therapies, tailoring treatment plans to individual needs, and fostering open communication with patients.

My dedication to staying up-to-date with the latest advancements in medicine, combined with my genuine passion for improving patients' lives, has been the driving force behind my career.

My goal is to provide compassionate, evidence-based care while ensuring that patients feel heard, respected, and supported throughout their healthcare journey.
