His degrees have provided him with training in primary care, modern diagnostics, herbal medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine, and clinical nutrition. However, his passion and practice emphasis is in sports medicine and functional neurology.

It became clear to him that each profession has its advantages, disadvantages, strengths, weakness and that a team approach is often more advantages to the patient.

Practice Emphasis

Functional Neurology is a clinical discipline that addresses the interaction of the nervous system with the environment.

The emphasis is on the nervous system as being the modulator of human expression and experience.

The unique and complex responses of each individual’s nervous system to changes in their environment are central to the discipline of Functional Neurology.
