What do you attribute your success to?

  • My father was a physician and was an influential role model. Although he practiced in an environment devoid of managed care, observing him practice was a rewarding experience that helped shape me into the physician I am today.

Areas of research

  • Disease Prevention, Lifestyle Choices, Weight Management

    I am a strong advocate of preventing disease that can be prevented. I encourage my patients to undergo screening tests recommended for their age and family history.

Teaching and speaking

  • I currently serve as a clinical preceptor for the University of Florida College of Medicine, USF (Morsani) College of Medicine, University of Tampa, University of South Florida, Indiana University and for Loyola University (New Orleans) School of Nursing.

    I have interviewed with numerous news and media organizations including NUTRINEWS, NBC Daytime, Medical Economics, Health Data Management, Money Magazine, Ivanhaoe News, WTVT Fox 13- Tampa, WFTS-TV ABC News- Tampa, and WCCO-TV CBS News- Minneapolis/St. Paul.
