Our Approach

Health, physiology, and the environment are intertwined!

From the “big picture” to specialized health outcomes.

  • I approach your endocrine care holistically — taking into account your lifestyle and personal goals, as well as thoroughly understanding your hormonal and metabolic needs
  • I aim to visualize how multiple body organs interact in explaining your symptoms.
  • Together, we focus on detecting the root cause of your illness and its comorbidities — with the sole purpose of providing useful medical therapy and education.
  • Our ultimate goal is to support you in reversing your disease and fostering lifelong wellness.

Our ‘big picture’ philosophy is our roadmap for achieving efficient and personalized care. I listen attentively to your concerns and gather meticulous information about your medical history and lifestyle. I then perform a comprehensive endocrine assessment that identifies the underlying cause of your symptoms. Together, we discuss effective treatment options that successfully correct your disease process and ultimately achieve long-term vitality.

Patient education is central to our medical philosophy. Together, we will discuss thoroughly:

  • What caused or contributed to your endocrine illness? How can it progress?
  • What clinical complications could occur as a result?
  • Are any comorbidities involved?
  • How is your medical condition interconnected with your environment and your metabolic hormones?
  • Together, how do we accomplish meaningful and positive health outcomes?
  • Finally, how do you stay healthy for life?

I strive for my patient to become his or her own “doctor”.
