I am a Doctor of Chiropractic and I graduated from Southern California University of Health Sciences as class valedictorian with a GPA of 3.99 in 2016.
My practice is a combination of Functional and Alternative Medicine as well as traditional Chiropractic care. To be honest with you, the idea of taking medication to rid the body of chronic disease does not ring true to me. While working with patients I have seen them very frustrated moving from one doctor to another trying to find the cause of their symptoms. Sometimes they have a diagnosis but are frustrated with taking accumulating amounts of medication, which in many cases, results in no real improvement.
Since I had great understanding of the biochemistry and underlying physiology of the body (two important courses that I also tutored while in school) I realized that I could help, and this was what inspired my mission to help people find the alternative option. This method treats the root of the problem, not simply the symptoms via medications. It is the basis of Functional Medicine. So, along with studying chiropractic I also started studying functional medicine by taking required courses and countless hours of training and certification, as well as attending related seminars. Since becoming a Chiropractor, I keep myself up to date in Functional medicine continuing in educational classes. This ensures that my patients receive the most comprehensive and advanced care available.
