I am a pediatrician. I like spending time with my patients and their parents, the old fashioned way. I like figuring out the problems of the patient and the why. What does a parent do when the child is medicated, seeing multiple specialists and yet does not seem better? The true measure of health is how few medicines a patient is on.

I also treat adults for chronic pain. I love this practice. I get amazing results now (in my 14th year of practice) that can be photographically documented.
I love what I do because I enjoy treating the complicated cases. These are the patients who have "tried everything" and where "all the tests are negative". These truly are the medical mysteries that most doctors brush aside as "in your head." Or if they believe you really have the symptoms and they don't have the answers, then you are left to "cope and deal" with the pain.
I actually enjoy the clinical challenge of complicated cases.This work is medical detective work. Once the primary and secondary strains are addressed and reduced, patients feel better. The work is precise but so subtle that it seems unbelievable and almost, yes, 'miraculous,' as Joslynn
will attest. Another heart wrenching case is Kathleen Baker... hear her testimony on Youtube
I attended the University of California at Riverside with a B.S. in biology (4years).
I attended the University of New England, College of Osteopathic Medicine (4 years).
I trained in pediatrics at Loma Linda Children's Hospital (3 years).
I've spent 11 years studying and 14 years in practice, that is 21 years of medical knowledge.
I still love the pure anatomy, physiology, embryology and physics behind figuring out the human body. I will continue with my work in pediatrics and osteopathy for both children and adults for another 40 years.
