“As a medical physician, my early days in practice reflected typical, conventional medical training. With the age-old traditional focus on the treatment of disease, physicians oftentimes rely too heavily on prescription drugs and invasive procedures. Too many doctors today remain rigidly bound by the confines of this model. As a result, the healthy state of being gets ignored, goes unstudied, and thus unaddressed. Yet the fact is that most of us live the majority of our days being well, wanting to stay well, and with a normal compunction to improve. Driven by these observations and coupled with an intense desire to listen carefully to the feelings and needs of my patients, I emerged with what I felt was a more comprehensive approach. At Peak Wellness we rigorously cure illness and treat injury, while tending to the overall health, well-being, and quality of life of our patients. Our goals are to heal, optimize, and maximize health.”
