As a family medicine specialist, I have witnessed the devastating effects of chronic medical conditions such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and hypertension. Interestingly, I was able to see a common denominator in all these diseases: most of the patients were overweight or obese. Looking back, I struggled with my weight since childhood. Although I was the heaviest out of my brothers and sisters, I was not prepared to treat obesity.
After completing my residency program, I moved to New York State and started working in a family practice office. It was working here that sparked my passion for wellness and preventive medicine.
Afterward, I moved to Bradenton, FL and even though I practiced urgent care medicine, I saw the need of a physician supervised weight loss program in Manatee County.
In 2005, I opened The Aesthetic & Wellness Center, a medical facility specializing in comprehensive medical weight loss, natural hormone replacement therapy and medical skin care services.
My lifestyle has changed for the better now. My goal is to inspire my patients and help them not just to lose weight, but to keep it off by making positive lifestyle changes in regards to health, wellness and beauty.
