About Uss Wellness, Comprehensive Health and Wellness Services
I’ve been providing naturopathic care to my patients for over 20 years. I believe it’s an approach to health that can make a tremendous impact on someone’s life. I started my career as a physical therapist, but I wanted to be able to do more for my patients. I was drawn to naturopathy because of its focus on whole patient wellness and addressing the underlying cause of the patient’s condition. So, with the support of my loving wife, I returned to school.
Today, as a doctor of naturopathic medicine, I specialize in functional medicine – patient-centered medical healing that treats individuals who may have imbalances and dysfunctions, as opposed to treating health problems as isolated diseases. In other words, I focus on uncovering and treating the root cause of disease, rather than just alleviating symptoms. Anything from joint pain to fatigue may be symptoms that trigger an investigation of an underlying cause. I’ve treated many patients who came to me for help with various mental health issues and it’s amazing and rewarding to see how with proper brain support, serious symptoms such as anxiety, depression, lack of focus and insomnia often resolve.
In my own personal life, I watched my mother suffer and deteriorate with Alzheimer’s disease. Despite skilled, knowledgeable care, no medications were able to change the course of her disease. She passed away, surrounded by her family, at age 68. Now, I know there is much more that could have been done for her. A functional medicine doctor would have determined what was driving the disease to progress. In fact, research is now demonstrating how the functional medicine approach can reverse early dementia symptoms, despite the fact that conventional wisdom tells us Alzheimer’s disease is chronic, progressive and untreatable.
If you are seeking a path to overall health from a naturopathic approach, I would be honored to help you achieve it. I look forward to meeting you on your road to wellness.

The reason patients come to me and refer their families and friends is that I provide one-on-one, personalized care.
Below are some of the powerful modalities I use in my practice. To promote health from the inside out, we will also incorporate concepts in nutrition, detoxification, homeopathy, vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids and hormonal therapies. I find that meditation and psychological techniques are also frequently beneficial.
