Integrative & Athlete Wellness Physician – Primary/Subspecialty Care Physician

As a provider, I always strive to break the physician-patient barrier because, in my experience, health outcomes and satisfaction improve greatly when the physician interacts with the patient on his or her level and is able to personalize their care. As the Integrative/Athlete Wellness physician here at Heritage LifeFit, I am excited about natural, non-invasive and non-surgical methods of healing and restoration for our patients and am inspired by the increasing understanding about how to maximize performance and longevity while optimizing the way the body heals. But, I am also a scientist and know that many of our conventional strategies are effective.
For my patients, I want to apply techniques that are individually and scientifically appropriate. I do not promote modalities or treatments if I do not believe they have scientific merit. This philosophy and commitment is likely derived from the roundabout way I entered medicine. Despite being very academic through high school, I took time off in between graduating and beginning college. In that period, I waited tables, designed sport sunglasses, and even played in a rock band before returning to school and earning my undergraduate, graduate and medical degrees. However, the fervor to seek and combine wellness and scientific contribution has always been at the forefront.
Renewal is an important aspect of my life also and I seek the same balance that I advocate to my patients. When I am not at work, I am likely flying down some trail on my mountain bike or running on the soccer pitch. My wife, kids and I are all very active and you can usually find us doing something outside as often as possible. I am incredibly passionate about the things I believe in and care about.
It is very exciting to me to work with patients who are dedicated to improving their overall state of health and well-being, and Integrative Wellness allows me to apply my analytic mind to a very patient-centered approach so as to blend general conventional and holistic medicine for great patient outcomes.
My goal at the Heritage group is to help redefine what the clinic/patient-physician experience is and ultimately improve medical care and allow for patients and everyone to be healthier, happier and more active.
