"I wanted to make a bigger impact on people’s lives by preventing heart attacks before they happened. I spent five years treating heart attacks after they had happened. I knew that if I had seen these patients before their heart attacks, I could have taken steps that most likely would have prevented their heart attacks in the first place.
If you can prevent the heart attack from happening, then you can have a greater impact on people’s lives. Alarmingly, 25% of the time the first symptom of a heart attack is sudden death. Some people do not survive heart attacks unless they are close to medical attention. So screening for heart disease and preventing heart attacks is insurance for your heart and peace of mind.
I really enjoy seeing my clients make dramatic improvements in their health. Many who lose excess weight can stop taking certain blood pressure and diabetes medications through diet and exercise. Also, I feel a sense of pride in helping people achieve their health goals. The secret to great care for the patient is actually caring for the patient. Treating others as you would have them treat you is a simple but very powerful way to practice medicine.
I hope to give my clients better health and, in turn, more happiness. I think my best quality as a practitioner is that I treat every client as I would my own family – with the respect and dignity they deserve. I take the time to listen to their problems and make sure all their questions are answered and they are educated. I offer positive feedback and motivation. My patients are a true inspiration to me. My heart is all in taking care of my clients."

In fact, the only thing that matters to us is what you personally need to protect your heart, avoid serious disease and achieve optimal health and wellness. We would rather help you get off unnecessary medications than prescribe another medication for you to take.
