Health and the pursuit of happiness are my passions, and I believe my background can show this. Treated for seizures as a child and unfortunate enough to lose my father to a brain tumor at age 17, my interest in health has been a lifelong one. These conditions impacted my life in such a way that led me to become a medical doctor and to specialize in neurology. Later, I did my internship of Internal Medicine and Residency of Neurology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and my fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, where I became chief resident and chief fellow. I passed the boards of the American Academy of Psychiatry and Neurology, the American Board of Clinical Neurophysiology, Sleep Medicine, Age Management, and Anti-Aging Medicine, and I am currently a fellow of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and a member of the American College of Nutrition. I was a neurologist and sleep specialist for nearly 17 years in private practice in Pensacola, Florida, where I became the Chairman of the Department of Neurology. I hope that by communicating my credentials I can begin to earn your time and trust. Please know that what you will hear from me is reinforced by educational background, decades practicing medicine, and a sense of personal integrity that I feel is crucial to both oneself and oneâ€™s business. I always tell my patients that my approach to delivering healthcare is simple: I will never recommend for my patients anything that I would not do for my family or myself. I believe there are voids in our healthcare system that I would like to fill. I am not fully satisfied with the way we, physicians, serve our patients today. Our healthcare is reactive rather than proactive. We have superior emergent and â€œsick care,â€ but not real prevention. We oftentimes emphasize treating the symptom rather than going to the root of the health problem. After all these years in practice, I have found a way to optimal health that truly works for my patients and me, and itâ€™s more than simply prescribing a medication to treat a symptom.
