Naturopathic Physician and IFM Certified Practitioner
I've been a Naturopathic Doctor for the past 25 years. I received my undergraduate degree from Duke University and my Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle WA.
I then went on to become deeply involved in the model called functional medicine. I am past Director of Clinical Research at Metagenics’ Functional Medicine Research Center.
I'm currently Director of Medical Education at the Institute for Functional Medicine and teach those concepts to other clinicians. I continue to see patients virtually two days a week.
I see all patients virtually. A virtual or telemedicine visit is an appointment over a video connection rather than in person. It is convenient and secure and can be done easily wherever you happen to be as long as you have a phone, computer, and internet access.
Where I Focus
I see a variety of people with different health issues, and over the years I’ve gained a significant amount of experience and expertise using the systems-based, functional medicine approach in these areas:
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
Heartburn/ Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
