Good Medicine • personalized care • HEALING SUPPORT
When you start with good medicine then add nutritional, mind/body and oriental medicine treatments that boost your immunity, blood flow, and natural healing abilities you get the best possible results. Good medicine starts with taking the time to listen carefully, make sure you've had good medical treatment, and then developing a plan to improve your health and healing abilities.
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, or are seeking to improve your health, long-term treatment with pharmaceuticals can itself create serious problems. In many cases, there are safer, more natural, and more effective ways to support healing.
Acupuncture, herbs, good nutrition, and simple mind/body practices can boost the effectiveness of your healing abilities, and improve your energy, circulation, and immunity. 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 and an acupuncturist for over four decades. 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 and most effective care available.
As a long-time Marin physician and 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. I work well with children, teens, adults and elders and welcome them all.
I'd be happy to talk with you for ten minutes at no charge to see if we'd be a good fit.
