My interest in Bio-identical hormone replacement started when my wife needed a total hysterectomy and had a surgical menopause. She was treated with the standard therapy after surgery, which only made her worse and caused side-effects. When she failed to improve and actually got worse I knew something needed to be done.

A compounding pharmacist recommended books by John Lee, M.D. I read them all and signed up for a course taught by the John Lee Institute. I have since taken close to 100 hours of training in Hormone replacement for men and women.

I reviewed the medical literature and read many studies, all of which presented a new way to view the issues of low or unbalanced hormones. It made sense to measure these hormones first to see which hormone(s) are deficient and then replace it with a hormone identical to the one the body makes. I have also learned the importance of Neuro-transmitters which can be the final piece of the puzzle.

Since a heart attack in July of 2012 I have limited my practice to Hormone replacement and Acupuncture for many reasons. First I truly love practicing in these unique areas, it has taken me many years of training and practice to become competent, and it gives me an opportunity to really listen to my patient and to treat each patient as a totally unique individual.
