      • We will always work together as a team.
      • We will turn over every stone to discover the root cause.
      • We're not going to just treat symptoms.
      • I use a combination of prescription and natural treatment modalities.
      • If I don't know the answer, I will work until I find it.

  • More than 75% of Americans are overweight.
  • Nearly half of all Americans have health compromised by obesity.
  • Chronic disease causes seven of every 10 deaths.
  • The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that resolving poor diet, inactivity, and smoking could prevent 80% of overall heart disease and stroke, 80% of type 2 diabetes, and 40% of cancer.
