I received my medical degree in 1992, entered into Trauma Surgery Training at MLK County Hospital, Los Angeles and joined the US Army Reserves. From 1993 – 1997 I underwent further General Surgery training at Chicago's Columbus Hospital.
From 1997 – 1999 I finalized my training with Baylor's Family Medicine program in Houston, TX. This Renaissance-Style medical training experience has provided me with an in-depth exposure to both Primary Care Medicine and Speciality Care Medicine.
My family is replete with physicians: Father, Father-in-Law, Mother-in-Law, Wife, Sister, Brother-in-Law and Brother.
The combination of growing up in a Medical Family with a very broad training experience led me to quickly realize the Power of Prevention.
As a Lt. Colonel with 4 overseas deployments to my credit, I understand the obligation to attend to the acutely injured Soldier.
As a private practitioner, I also under the need for a stronger, more fortified brand of Preventative Medicine. Early in my career I have discovered and joined the field of medicine known as Anti-Aging Medicine.
Anti-Aging Medicine is a clinical specialty that is founded on the application of advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders, and diseases.
It is a healthcare model promoting innovative science and research to prolong the healthy lifespan in humans.
Afterall, when health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot become manifest, strength cannot be exerted, wealth becomes useless and reason is powerless.
Within the Patient-Doctor relationship, I perceive my role as that of a Teacher or a Coach and not that of an overbearing figure who barks out orders that should be followed to the letter... or else.
I think of myself as the calm GPS voice who helps guide my patients through a foggy cloud of confusion and caucophony of symptoms to a clear and defined path to wellness. This is my passion and I love my job.
