"Dr. Anker was born and raised in Los Angeles, California spending most of his time hiking in Topanga Canyon and riding horses in Chatsworth. In addition to his study of the human body, he has developed a passion for the theatre arts, organic local foods, ceramic art, music, and world culture. He speaks fluent Spanish and has lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Dr. Anker completed his Bachelor of Science in Genetics with a minor in Theatre Arts at the University of California, Davis. He chose genetics because he understood and appreciated the subject to be the foundation of the human body and thus, a potential key to health and restoration. During his time there, he studied the effects of theatre on children with autism at the MIND Institute. His medical studies commenced in Florida at NOVA Southeastern College of Osteopathic Medicine, followed by a residency in Family Medicine with the UC Davis Consortium for Medical Education in Modesto, California. Dr. Anker brings a worldly outlook to medicine. No potential treatment is ignored. He has come to find Integrative Health and Medicine best describes his approach as he uses modalities beyond the pharmacy. He brings love, compassion, as well as a critical and analytical mind to your care."
"Our approach to medicine is slow, methodical and never rushed. We incorporate an intimate approach to your care–embracing a classic definition of what it means to be a physician and healer in the community while also utlizing modern technologies and labs to provide the best current evidence-based medical care. The focus is primary care from pediatric to geriatric care. We utilize natural methods including nutrition, herbal remedies, and lifestyle changes to guide a patient toward optimal health and balance. We also use traditional prescription pharmaceuticals only when necessary and if possible, for a limited amount of time. We prefer patients not be burdened with pills and interventions, rather, that they live life in the most natural way possible. The practice is small and intimate with a limited number of patients so that we may provide the attention needed for careful and meticulous care. Our physician is board certified in Family Medicine by the AAFP and trained with an emphasis on Integrative Health."
