I have always been interested in learning new things and applying them to my life. I worked my way through a private high school and through college. I have studied many topics in my years in college and applied them to the various positions I have held. After working with science, mathematics, and computers, for years, I realized I wanted to help people. I decided to go into medicine. After practicing anesthesia for several years, I again looked for new challenges and studied and then practiced pain management. Even while doing pain management I was looking for better ways to treat pain and started a small ketamine clinic, again putting me on the edge of innovation in medicine. I started using ketamine as a pain treatment because the standard treatments for chronic pain frequently fail or create terrible problems for the people we are supposed to be helping. I currently have 5 offices in Northern Arizona for pain management.

When i went to medical school, i wanted to be a healer. In anesthesia and later pain management i have been just a treater. Several years ago, I started to study regenerative medicine. It held the promise of helping the body to heal. This education has progressed to learning about adult stem cells and finally stem cell derived exosomes, the future of regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine holds the promise of the power of healing, not just treating. I have had many success stories.  Vivian, Rachel, Katherine, Bruce, Dennis, Kathy, are just some of the people treated with stem cells who have had their lives made better.

I am excited to be able to offer stem cell and stem cell derived exosome therapy to my patients. It allows me to full fill my dream of truly being a healer, to help people without pills, steroids, or surgery. I want to offer the opportunity of a better life to all my patients. I currently have an office in Las Vegas for stem cell and stem cell derived exosome treatments in addition to my Arizona offices.
