Areas of Specialization: I specialize in treating children with Autism and related disorders. The practice applies both alternative and conventional methods to diagnose and treat this segment of the population that has been very difficult to manage in the past. Recent findings have made the care and treatment of children with autism possible.

Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Chemical Sensitivity, Environmental Sensitivity, Food Sensitivity, and Behavior or Learning Disabled are some of the labels used to describe our children. Other problems these children may present with are asthma, allergies and gastrointestinal disorders. My practice includes children with these difficulties and given these labels.

My practice has been successful in helping these children (and their families) make strides toward correcting their deficiencies and eliminating the toxins that are crippling them.

Philosphy/Description: I practice both alternative and conventional medicine in an environment that emphasizes the quality of a person+ó-Ç-Ös life, investigating and treating the cause of illness not only the symptoms. Particularly encouraging is the opportunity to work with individual children, parents and families to facilitate their need to help those who suffer from developmental and learning delays, and/or behavioral problems, and unexplained/unresolved medical problems.

I have been alarmed at the number of children and families affected with significant environmental allergies/food allergies, Autism Spectrum Disorders and other related developmental delays. Children diagnosed with Autism, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), Gastroesophageal Reflux, Allergies, Environmental/Chemical Sensitivities and other oftentimes related illnesses have the potential for treatment, often reducing or eliminating irritating, disturbing or alarming symptoms. The improvements I have seen with the current and emerging treatments that address the underlying physiology, pathology and biochemistry of the body+ó-Ç-Ös multiple systems have been astounding.

My objective in this practice is to help all of my patients achieve good health and quality of life. And as a partnership, my patient, their families and I can determine the optimum plan to best care and treat the whole individual with the many resources now available to us. I am honored to participate in guiding families+ó-Ç-Ö determination to find answers to improve their overall health.
