I am a 63-year-old physician who works to integrate metabolic health strategies into cancer care. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in economics and pre-medicine, I matriculated at the University of Cincinnati Medical College. After completing my residency in radiation oncology at Stanford University Hospital, I supplemented my formal education by enrolling in a diverse array of programs ranging from hypnosis and nutrition to Eastern philosophy.
I started the practice of oncology in 1989, and the 33 years have passed quickly. As a physician and assistant medical directory of Care Oncology, I strove to introduce effective, well-tolerated holistic adjuvants to supplement the standard of care and measure their impact on patient outcomes. Interventions examined included simple balance training programs, diet adjustments, supplements, repurposing of metabolically acting drugs, portable O2, exercise bands, and sleep hacks. Although these strategies differ substantially from one another, all were designed to be safe, inexpensive, and universally accessible.
When I am not seeing a virtual consult, I enjoy spending time in nature. My wife Lindsay and I love to hike the North Carolina Mountains trails near our home and stand up paddle boards on nearby lakes and rivers. During the winter, we enjoy travelling to Montana to ski and snowboard with our two children and friends. Most of my charity work endeavors to encourage people to explore the outdoors, preserve nature, inspire human potential, and elevate the standard of care for patients with cancer.
