Good Medicine • personal care • healing support
When you start with good medicine then add treatments that boost your immunity, blood flow, and natural healing abilities you get the best possible results.
My experience as a primary care and Emergency Room doctor has shown me that pharmaceutically and surgery-based medicine can sometimes be life-saving. But when you have a chronic illness, long-term treatment with pharmaceuticals can itself create serious problems. Fortunately, in many cases, there are safer, more natural, effective ways to support healing.
Acupuncture, herbs, good nutrition, and simple mind/body practices can boost the effectiveness of your healing abilities, improve your energy, circulation, and immune responses. They can help you heal more quickly, whether you have a simple injury or viral infection, a chronic issue like back or neck pain, or a serious or complex illness.
When we treat the causes of disease AND boost your healing abilities we get the best results.
I have been a Medical Doctor since 1970, and an acupuncturist since 1972. I have worked with, learned from, and taught many of the major thought leaders in the holistic medicine field, and I work to bring the top level of expertise to every patient I see. I have many years of experience in separating out what works and what doesn't work, and can help you get the safest, most effective and best care available.
As a long-time member of the Bay Area medical community, and a long-time Clinical Faculty member at UCSF, I can also connect you with the best referrals if we need additional specialty expertise .
I welcome patients with difficult, unusual, and complex situations, as well as patients with common problems like back and neck pain, headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, and autoimmune disease.
