I have been practicing conventional medicine since 1993, and Integrative medicine since 1999. I received my MD from USC Medical School (1993) and am Board Certified by a properly accredited national board (ABMS). In addition, I completed my Family Practice Residency, an additional three years of training after medical school, from Long Beach Memorial Hospital in Long Beach, California. I hold a Master’s degree in Nutrition from the UCLA School of Public Health (1989). I am also clinical faculty at USC Medical School where I teach first and second year medical students. I have been a DAN! Doctor in Los Angeles since 2001 (Defeat Autism Now!). You may verify my credentials at the Medical Board of California’s website. I have received my Functional Medicine Training through Dr. Jeffrey Bland and the Institute for Functional Medicine and my advanced bioidentical hormone training came under Thierry Hertoghe MD.
