He is also well versed in working through issues relating to digestive health including IBS and IBD, and is equally experienced in helping people lose weight as he is in helping people gain it.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I pride myself on giving my patients exactly what they want when they come to see me. Different people come to see a dietitian for different reasons and with different expectations. I do not try to pass off a general solution to your individual problem.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

- Weight management ( weight gain+ loss) - Disease risk reduction ( lowering cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar etc) - Veganism/vegetarianism in addition to sports nutrition

What are you proud of in your practice?

I’ve helped hundreds of people on the path towards a healthier and happier life, which is exactly what I am in this business to do.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy weight management cases the best, both weight gain and weight loss, not because your weight is the most important thing about you, but there is certainly a sense of accomplishment and relief that I see in my patients when, in combination with improving their overall diet, they also reach their weight goals.
