What is it and why do it?

I am a fully accredited and licensed Osteopathic physician (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, a DO) with over two decades of experience in the Central Michigan area. A key distinction between DO's and MD's is that we're more attuned to looking at (and of course treating) the causes of our patients' problems rather than just the immediate symptoms.

In the past decade I completed my fellowship in Integrated Medicine. This additional knowledge helps me find the nexus of the problem - whether it's toxins, parasites, infections, hormone imbalances, or standard infections and help bring each individual back into balance.

I look at and will suggest a wide variety of treatments, high quality vitamins and supplements, appropriate nutritional choices, and prescription drugs as needed.

My specialty of Integrative or Functional Medicine looks at the person as a whole and not as a diseased organ. Mind, body, and spirit all play a role in managing each person's search for wellness.

Some frequent medical problems that I have seen and successfully treated include fibromyalgia, irritable bowel, chronic fatigue, migraine headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, and gastro-esophageal reflux disease.

I'm especially excited in my successes in helping patients with auto immune disorders affecting the nervous system, including Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ("ALS", also called Lou Gehrig's Disease), Multiple sclerosis ("MS"),
and Parkinson's Disease.

I see patients on a consultant basis and will be happy to coordinate my evaluation and treatment regimen with your primary care provider.

I look forward to helping you achieve your goal of wellness.
