Medicine for Living is an Integrative Medicine practice whose mission is to help clients achieve optimal health and disease prevention. Using powerful genomic tools, we are able to help patients understand aspects of their health and bodies previously unknown to them.
What drew you to this profession?
I want to focus on prevention and disease reversal. After nearly 20 years as a thoracic surgeon, I encountered countless patients with life-threatening disease. My desire led me to study and become board certified in Integrative Medicine.
How does your work differ from others in your profession?
Genomics sheds light on what our DNA brings to the table. Medicine for Living uses genomic testing to get to that root cause of health issues. This knowledge empowers clients to both better understand and take charge of their health.
What should someone expect from working with you?
I personally get to know the client, their health concerns and goals. I will order appropriate testing and review results with them. I develop a personalized treatment plan for each client.
What changes do you have planned for 2022?
Traditional medicine treats disease as it occurs. It is in effect a Band-Aid system. Frequently, there is not enough time to do a deep dive into someone’s health problems. Medicine for Living delivers personalized care addressing both known health problems and health risks previously unknown to the patient.
