"He is a rare treasure—a doctor who can draw upon both western medicine and alternative approaches in a very skillful way. I hope you have an opportunity to experience his caring, healing presence."
—S. L.


I have been in clinical practice since 1984.

I am as passionate now as when I began, because I have seen thousands of people improve their health with the simple, non-invasive, common sense natural medicine I practice.

An experienced leader—and founder—of naturopathic medicine in California

As a pioneer in naturopathic medicine in the state of California, I have served as Founding Member and past President of the California Naturopathic Doctors Association (CNDA), and I am one of the doctors responsible for licensing naturopathic doctors in the state. On the national level I have been recognized as well, recently serving as President of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP).

I bring this thorough and global perspective of naturopathic medicine to every individual I treat.

Natural, common sense treatments based on evidence for proven results

Every year I practice I find more empirical evidence for the effectiveness of natural approaches to health. When I provide care, you can be assured that your treatment will involve the most effective balance of natural medicine, carefully chosen for your condition, to achieve best results.

Successful treatment for chronic, stubborn conditions

I have become one of the Bay Area’s most sought after practitioners by successfully treating many chronic conditions that frustrate conventional approaches. The highly personalized treatment plans I develop not only determine the underlying causes of your symptoms, they can manage and even eliminate chronic conditions to lay the foundation for robust health for years to come.

I make it a central part of my care to educate and guide you to better health and vitality.

Most of all, I always listen to you.

The good health of thousands I’ve treated reflects the effectiveness of natural approaches to health care. I look forward to being your experienced and expert partner on your path to good health.
