He served as chief resident at Mount Sinai Medical Center, spending time in rotations at Jackson Memorial Hospital and Miami Children’s hospital. After that, he completed a sports medicine fellowship at Northshore/Long Island Jewish Healthcare system in New York, following that up with a two year certified practitioner program with the Institute for Functional Medicine.
While he has worked as an emergency physician for many years and has provided event coverage across a variety of professional sports scenarios, he is most passionate about using functional medicine to help a person change their health outcomes.
He aims to look at the root cause of illness instead of the classic one-size-fits-all, “take this pill” approach. While medications and prescriptions are used within the practice, he believes that working towards health is far more complicated than band-aid prescriptions.
The practice philosophy is that each individual deserves a unique approach and it all starts with an understanding of the timeline of their health, an individualized lab/genetics data collection, and then partnering towards small steps based off of that information.
