vitality and longevity if you are well and want to maintain it and improve
As an internist and an anti-aging/regenerative physician, my medical practice
has evolved over many years. I combine a wide variety of healing disciplines
depending on your medical needs. I deal with common medical problems as
well as ones that are more complex. I have seen a very broad spectrum
of medical conditions over the years from working as an Emergency room
physician, hospital affiliated Internist at New York Presbyterian Hospital
and in private practice. This background has taught me to diagnose and
understand illness. My many years studying nutritional therapies, herbs,
mind-body medicine and spiritual healing has further enabled me not only
to treat illness more naturally, but also educated me about optimal wellness
and prevention, which is my ultimate goal for my patients. The science
of nutritional medicine is now quite advanced and I emphasize this aspect
in my approach to treatment.
a detailed whole person oriented medical history and physical exam, I
utilize a full array of laboratory testing to determine the kind of imbalances
you might have, your basic level of wellness, and then design a healing
or wellness and longevity program with you.
that I commonly use:
• Blood work both routine from regular labs such as Quest or Labcorp
and Functional/Nutritional testing from labs such as Genova Diagnostics,
Meridian Valley, Doctor’s Data and Diagnostechs.
• Urine tests both brief and extensive to evaluate hormonal levels
and metabolism, heavy metal toxicity, brain neurotransmitters and common
• Saliva Tests for Adrenal rhythm and function.
• Stool Collections for Comprehensive Digestive Analysis that
diagnoses healthy and unhealthy bacteria, parasites, candida, digestive
enzyme capacity, inflammation, and other markers of digestive function.
• EKG for routine heart evaluation and arrhythmias.
• Radiology imaging such as routine x-rays, Ultrasound, CT scans,
cutting edge MRI scanning and thermography. One of the best things about
modern medicine is the extraordinary technology for diagnosis.
• Genetic testing to assist in optimizing liver detoxification
capacity and to assist in treating anxiety and depression syndromes.
This type of testing helps me personalize the type of nutrients that
are unique to your genetic predispositions.
IV nutrient therapy for fatigue syndromes, recovery from viral infections,
detoxification, restoration after excessive stress, post-op recovery
and on occasion as an adjunct to chemotherapy for patients with cancer.
involving digestion, abdominal pains, metabolism, cardiovascular health,
hypertension, routine infections, allergies, lack of vitality, moodiness,
cognitive changes, insomnia, menopause, sexual health, thyroid imbalances,
adrenal dysfunction and weight gain are the type of problems I most
commonly see. A wide variety of changes are associated with the various
“pauses” of aging, and I greatly enjoy helping others diminish
and postpone those symptoms.
Treatment is integrative which means I use a combination of conventional,
natural and holistic/alternative remedies that include:
Dietary and nutritional counseling
• Medications when necessary
• Nutrients of all kinds, personalized when possible depending
on the context
• Bioidentical Hormone therapy for almost all glandular imbalances
and restoration of normal function
• Amino Acid targeted therapy for brain balance
• Herbs both as treatment of acute infections and for rejuvenation
• IV nutrient therapy for fatigue syndromes, recovery from viral
infections, detoxification, restoration after excessive
stress and on occasion as an adjunct to chemotherapy for patients with
• Integrative HCG Weight Loss program
• Mind-body counseling
• Lifestyle recommendations
addition to referring to medical subspecialists when called for, I work
closely with doctors of Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, chiropractors,
body-mind massage therapists, lymph drainage specialists, physical therapists
and energy healers who are talented and grounded.
I emphasize prevention and aim to employ a restorative model to help you
recover from illness or imbalance and then optimize your vitality, longevity,
and quality of life.
