For more than two decades as an integrative medicine physician, I have been developing my practice of neuroanatomical acupuncture, a scientific application of the ancient Chinese medical art. I’m an experienced practitioner of integrative oncology acupuncture and an expert at using integrative approaches for treating autoimmune disorders.
Prior to joining The University of Kansas Health System, I served as medical director of integrative medicine at the Miami Cancer Institute. Before that, I founded and served as director of Georgia Integrative Medicine in Tyrone, Georgia. I have held teaching positions at the University of West Georgia, the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College, Berkeley, and the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. I attended medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin, where I received the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Student Research Fellowship. I also received a master’s degree in public health from San Diego State University.
I completed two years as family medicine resident in the Aurora St. Luke’s Family Medicine Residency Program and completed a preventive medicine residency at the University of California, San Diego. I also completed two years of fellowship training under renowned integrative medicine leader Dr. Andrew Weil at the University of Arizona.
