I always had an interest in health and wellness growing up, so medical school was a natural choice for me. I originally trained as a pediatrician, because that was the area of medicine where I found the greatest focus on preventative care. As a pediatrician, I quickly realized I was spending a lot of time writing prescriptions for antibiotics and asthma and ADD medications. I soon recognized that this type of care wasn’t really satisfying. Something was missing.
I began to seek out opportunities to learn more about providing an alternative type of care—one that focused on resolving problems, not just trying to treat symptoms. I soon discovered exactly what I was looking for in functional medicine. I retired from pediatrics and began the process of re-educating myself and completed a formal Fellowship Program in functional medicine.
Ten years ago, I opened a new practice. It’s been a much more satisfying way of practicing medicine for me. I’m now able to help people more than I ever could practicing in a more traditional way. I don’t simply put a band-aid on a patient’s symptoms; I work to resolve the problems that cause them to feel poorly.
Today I am a Board examiner for The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). I’ve had the opportunity to travel all over the world to administer exams to doctors. At the same time, as this form of medicine continues to develop and advance, I keep learning and training. I am a Diplomat of the American Board of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine and American Board of Integrative Medicine.
I am the President of the North Carolina Integrative Medicine Society. We are the only state in the country to have an Integrative Medical Society. We work to support functional medicine practitioners in NC and to promote functional medicine, so more people have access to this type of care.
I combine the best of what traditional medicine and functional medicine have to offer patients in need of hormone balancing. An integrative approach allows me to get the best results possible.
My team and I work to provide exceptional care that is personalized and comprehensive. As one of my patients, you will receive all of the education and emotional support you need to achieve optimal hormone health and wellness.
