Q1: Before joining A4M, what was your medical background?
I was a board certified pediatric hospitalist working mainly in intensive care unit at Baylor College of Medicine.
Q2: What anti-aging techniques have you incorporated into your practice? And how did you so?
Since conventional medicine failed to help me with my own medical issues, I started searching for other modalities and was successful in treating myself. My goal is providing all different modalities with scientific support to all my patients. combining conventional medicine with all other modalities in a personalized and precise medical practice provides more than one way to help patients.
Q3: What are the benefits of practicing anti-aging medicine? (as a professional, and for your practice?)
Looking at the root cause of each problem and help patients to resolve it. Evaluating each patient as a whole person with mind, body and spirit and applying all different modalities provided in Integrative and regenerative medicine as well as age management medicine to help them.
Q4: What are the changes you see in your patients?
Earning health and happiness that they deserve by changing their life style , healthy eating habits and programmed exercise along with hormonal optimization. Appropriate supplements and herbs would be helpful as well. I am using the latest lab tests to help diagnose and treat patients. Genetics will be an important part of medical practice in future and we all should prepare ourselves with the knowledge to interpret the results and explain it to patients who are seeking for the information.
Q5: Why would you recommend Anti-Aging Medicine to your peers?
In general we need to prepare ourselves to overcome the obstacles that aging brings to our lives. With preparation we all can have the best quality of life and enjoy longer life span as we stay active and productive throughout life. Managing the environmental toxins is another big issue that we need to take care of it before it is too late.
Q6: Where do you see the future of Anti-Aging medicine 20 years from now?
Considering the fact that all major universities such as UCSF, UCLA, Harvard, Mayo Clinic started adding Integrative medicine fellowship and teaching medical students about the principle of Integrative/ regenerative/ personalized medicine, I can clearly see that what we fight for it today will be the main stream medicine in 20 years. For those who don’t have time to wait for 20 years ( such as myself) it should be available to whoever needs it today.
