Information for Patients

From the practitioner: About My Practice

As an emergency physician I am trained to save lives. In the last two decades I have treated tens of thousands of patients, often for complications resulting from chronic disease. It is clear that as a society our lifestyle choices are significantly impacting our health. As a Greek immigrant I understand the value of social connection and the importance of a whole-food, plant-strong diet. As an endurance athlete I understand the physiology of exercise and recovery. And as someone who was feeling burned out I understand the power of meditation, mindfulness and prayer in grounding our lives and helping us visualize our true purpose. My "why" is to help you live your best life; personalized medical care for peak health and longevity.

From the practitioner: What Patients Can Expect

As your coach and medical consultant I will support and guide you on your journey. Expect close communication even outside of the designated meeting times. As your accountability partner I will be there to encourage your active involvement in the process to ensure success. Together we can uncover the root cause of your symptoms and find a solution that works and is sustainable.
