Trained in both internal medicine and obstetrics/gynecology, I have been practicing for more than 35 years. My motto has always been to treat my patients just as I would like my mother, daughter, and myself to be treated.

My practice changed dramatically about 20 years ago. Despite all that I had learned in medical school and residency, I suffered a major health crisis. During my recovery, I realized that there had to be a better way to approach illness, and putting Band-Aids on open sores was not it. That is when I ventured into the areas of integrative and alternative medicine, which is now the cornerstone of my current practice. For me, preventing illness is far more important than just treating it.

The additional training that I have received during the past 18 years enables me to take care of the "whole" patient. Under my care, you will begin with a series of lifestyle changes that include customized nutrition and supplementation, detoxification, and bioidentical hormone therapy. The results will be a distinct difference in quality of life, as well as an actual decrease in the diseases of aging. Optimal health and well-being are the ultimate goals.

The true key to life is balance — physical, mental, spiritual, metabolic, and hormonal. The old adage that everything in life follows the 70/30 rule — 70% genetics and 30% environment — has been disproven. The modern-day 70/30 rule is now 70% environment and 30% genetics. And despite our genetics, many diseases can be prevented. Nutrition is the foundation of health and healing. Hormonal balance is the holy grail.

I have now partnered with PATIENTS MEDICAL, the leading integrative and holistic practice in the city of New York, giving patients access to additional modalities such as chelation therapy, ultraviolet light and ozone therapy, vaginal and facial rejuvenation, in addition to affordable hair transplant, and other innovative treatments. I will partner with YOU to take charge of YOUR health.

NOTE: Forever Health provides a directory where people like you can connect with BHRT and other physicians and innovative health practitioners. We do not provide medical advice or services directly. While BHRT and prevention are important to the physicians and health practitioners listed, each has his or her own approach to practicing medicine. So when scheduling your appointment, be sure to clarify the reason for your visit, as well as your goals for seeking out such treatment.

NOTE on Insurance: Innovative practitioners and insurance companies have long debated the importance of preventive medicine and services such as BHRT. Due to variations in coverage for novel treatment options, many practitioners will resolve this issue by providing their services on a cash-only basis. Forever Health encourages you to contact the practitioner to determine if any alternative payment options or post-visit reimbursements exist.

DISCLAIMER: Inclusion in this directory is free to practitioners and does not constitute endorsement by Forever Health. All health practitioners who appear on this list do so on the sole basis of their own expression of interest in the fields of BHRT or other integrative medicine. Forever Health does not verify the competence, professional credentials, business practices or validity of the expressed interests of these health practitioners. Forever Health makes no recommendation of any health practitioner on this list and makes no suggestion that any such health practitioner will cure, treat, or prevent any disease or condition.
