“I believe the best way to achieve wellness is to integrate conventional medicine with other healing modalities. During my residency and while at Kaiser (Permanente), I came across a large number of patients requiring help with chronic care. As more and more integrative approaches became available to help them lead much better quality lives than what drugs alone could afford, I started researching these techniques together with conventional medicines to help my patients. And the results were striking.
Just as the human mind plays a strong role in disease formation, it plays an equally vital role in healing too.
I believe that we all have an innate ability to heal ourselves. I am here to hold your hand while you embark upon your own healing journey."
