Q1: Before joining A4M, what was your medical background?
My medical background prior to A4M was primarily in a traditional hospital-based endocrinology practice. I transitioned to a wellness clinic where I was first introduced to functional medicine. I then went on to establish and run my own integrative-endocrinology practice.
Q2: What anti-aging techniques have you incorporated into your practice? And how did you so?
I work primarily with hormone therapies treating thyroid conditions, and other hormone replacements. I also focus on nutritional therapies to optimize hormone function.
Q3: What are the benefits of practicing anti-aging medicine? (as a professional, and for your practice?)
Anti-aging, or regenerative, medicine actually works towards managing and correcting underlying factors that cause disease issues rather than just place a bandage over the problem. I like to always tell my patients that part of my goal is to take them off of prescription medicines.
Q4: What are the changes you see in your patients?
My patients who follow my recommendations tend to do better overall and feel empowered over their health, rather than a victim to disease.
Q5: Why would you recommend Anti-Aging Medicine to your peers?
Anti-aging medicine really allows us, as practioners, to accomplish why we actually went into medicine.
Q6: Where do you see the future of Anti-Aging medicine 20 years from now?
I think the sky is the limit. We will further personalized health care through genomics and metabolomics and hopefully find eradication therapies for conditions that we now consider untreatable.
