I have always been interested in holistic health care, nutrition, and psychology. Both of my parents were journalists who trained me to analyze information, read between the lines, and be conscious of whose interest might be involved in my getting that information. This is why my point of view may not always be that of conventional doctors. I also attribute my perspective to my wider education on health than traditionally trained medical doctors are usually exposed to.
I graduated from the Bronx High School of Science in 1974. I graduated from S.U.N.Y. at Stony Brook Medical School in 1987, where I won honors in Family Practice and a prize for a paper I wrote on public health policy. I did my family practice residency at Bronx Lebanon Hospital. While in medical school, I had served as student representative to the American Association of Family Physicians. In 1990, upon finishing my residency, I moved to Miami and worked for one year as assistant faculty in the Family Practice Department at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Subsequently, I have worked in various community health centers and clinics in South Florida from Perrine to Belle Glade. I have been married for over 25 years and have three children. I passed my N.C.C.A.O.M. exams in acupuncture, point location, and Chinese herbs after attending three years of classes and community acupuncture clinic. I also became licensed as an acupuncturist in Florida.
In May of 2001, I opened my own private practice, utilizing what is best in Chinese and Western medicine. I mostly treated patients with acupuncture, nutrients, and herbs. Between 2001 and 2003, I also attended seminars in and utilized various energy medicine techniques which involved applied kinesiology, including N.A.E.T. (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique), Neuro Modulation Technique (by Leslie Feinberg, D.C.) and Neuro Emotional Technique (by Scott Walker, D.C.).
In August of 2003, I began utilizing the EPFX (known in Europe as the QXCI or the SCIO) as my main modality of assessment and treatment.
This type of biofeedback, based on the principles of quantum physics, has been truly revolutionary in terms of its wide array of energy medicine programs (for example, acupuncture meridian balancing and homeopathy), and also its ability to identify trends in a patient at the energetic level, before these changes might actually result in changes at the biochemical level (detectable in blood labs) or changes in the structural level (detectable on the physical exam, x-rays, or scans).
I keep my patients healthy by using quantum biofeedback (=EPFX), the finest nutritional supplements and herbs, lifestyle counseling, and also by referring patients to the appropriate allied health practitioners. I only use Western medicine where it is appropriate and necessary in order to stabilize the patient, thus giving more time for natural methods time to work.
My ideal patient is one who accepts responsibility for their own health and works with me as a team at regular intervals over time so that they can optimize their physical,
mental, and spiritual wellbeing.
