I became interested in Functional Medicine secondary to my own health issues that surfaced about 15 years ago — stress and lack of sleep. Taking the lifestyle advice I have given over the years to countless patients with similar issues, I decided to leave my 25-year anesthesia practice in July 2019 to pursue the practice of Functional Medicine full time.
Anesthesia has a proclivity for being a very stressful profession and I had been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue. By my early forties I noticed I was always tired, had problems sleeping at night, and was gaining weight despite frequent exercise and watching my diet. Fortunately, and with the guidance of a Functional Medicine physician in my area, I was healed through a plan of stress reduction, sleep therapy, nutrition, and adrenal supplements.
I was so impressed with my physician and the power of functional medicine that I pursued a fellowship in Functional Medicine and became an A4M Diplomat (American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine). While continuing with my anesthesia practice, I started a small Functional Medicine practice and am now pursuing this passion full time.
There is a huge need for medical doctors who embrace patient-centered collaborative “health-span” care (how well you live your life) as opposed to the traditional model of reactive/disease-based health care. In my highly personalized Functional Medicine practice, I am able to put the utmost focus on the patient-physician relationship, which I believe is vital to providing excellent medical care and optimizing health.
