Treatment Mission Statement

My mission is to provide you with a doctor’s office that can find answers for all your medical needs easily and effectively.  I believe the easier it is to receive expert medical care, the healthier and happier you will feel.


I have been in private practice in North Scottsdale since 1992 and I have enjoyed caring for my friends and patients in the community over these years.  I am a certified AME (Air Medical Examiner) and as such, I give flight physicals to pilots from around the world.  After learning of the work of my colleagues John McDougall, M.D. and T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., in 2010, I have been encouraging my patients to try a whole-food plant based diet.  The overall improvement to the health of my patients on this healthful diet has been dramatic.


“Staying active in professional organizations allows my patients to receive the highest quality of medical care available.  Sharing information and learning about medical breakthroughs lets me offer my patients the very latest innovations in procedures and techniques to improve their lives.”

Medical Viewpoint

Nearly all chronic conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) are due to persistent biofilm forming infections within the vasculature and body.  These persistent infections are invisible to the immune system because of the formation of a biofilm layer surrounding them.  Additionally, they are resistant to the effect of general use antibiotics.  By combinding the latest in diagnostic technology, the principles of the late rheumatologist, Dr. Thomas McPherson Brown, and by incorporating a whole-food plant based diet, a real and potentially lasting change in the health of the chronically ill can be achieved.

“From an early age, I knew I wanted to improve people’s quality of life. Through my education and extensive experience, I have been able to make positive changes in people’s lives through expert medical care.  Knowing I have helped someone become healthier and happier is the best feeling any physician can have.”
