My goal is to add more happiness to your world than you ever dreamed possible by giving you tools that you can immediately use to improve your health and extend your life.

I often say healthy living starts with you. Many of patients have been with my medical office for years and continuously refer their loved ones. That’s because I am passionate about your care.

In fact, I am humbled to say:

Keck School of Medicine -USC awarded me as an outstanding teacher.

I humorously coined the term "you are what you eat" because like you, I believe that a healthy diet is one of the keys to good health.

From my specialty in internal medicine, to my dedicated clinical investigations, I diligently work to innovate health care.

I believe you must bring your whole self to the table ...

Born and raised in Memphis Tennessee with nothing more than passion, loving parents and a dream, I have devoted my life to the well-being of thousands of patients over the years.

If you want to thrive as a healthier person, you can count on my care to help get you there. 

I also believe genuine compassion is the greatest  health and world-changing skill on the planet.

Throughout the years as a clinical professor at the Keck School of Medicine- USC I help scholars dream big and back it up with a sound education.

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.
