Integrative Pediatric Services in Greenwich, CT
My practice focuses on the use of natural medicine, alternative therapies and conventional medicine when appropriate for treatment of common childhood conditions.
Integrative & Conventional Pediatric Medicine - We Bridge the Gap
I embrace each patient by considering all elements of lifestyle including birth history, diet and nutrition, sleep hygiene, environmental exposure, psychosocial factors and genetics. With the rise in mental health issues, my goal is to help your child build a strong foundation for optimal growth and development. I believe utilizing healthy foods, positive lifestyle habits, alternative therapies and natural medicines complimentary with conventional medicine when appropriate are the key habits to optimizing both mind and body.

Philosophy of Hippocrates - All Diseases Begin in the Gut
My belief that all diseases begin in the gut and philosophy of "let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food," follows that of Hippocrates, the father of medicine.
