His most prevalent conditions that he treats are Pain, both chronic and acute, Psycho-Emotional(anxiety,stress,depression) Digestive, Gynecological, and Sleep Disorders. Although this may seem like a very broad scope, most of the time these problems are all inter-connected.

His commitment to his patients is grounded in his deep belief that compassion, hands on care, and deep attentive listening are paramount to the healing process. He firmly believes in being a partner with his patients through their journey in achieving health and wellness, and that should be the foundation of all medicine.
