Welcome to my home page!
I love what I do and I do best what I love.
I am a pediatrician. I like spending time with my patients and their parents, the old fashioned
way. I like figuring out the problems of the patient and the why. What does a parent do when
the child is medicated, seeing multiple specialists and yet does not seem better? The true
measure of health is how few meds a patient is on.
I also treat adults for chronic pain. I love this practice. I get amazing results now (in my 10th
year of practice) that can be photographically documented. At this point, some new patients
are even referred to me by 2 or 3 separate individuals who don't know each other. My
patients hear about me and drive from other counties to see me. When I go on vacation, they
are happy to know that I am taking some time off and gladly wait for my return (Or as I usually
explain, "my patients pile in before I leave, and they pile in after." I work to wean patients off
narcotics as their pain subsides. I work to free them from dependence on meds and ultimately
dependence on MDs and, yes, eventually, their dependence even on me. This is true joy and
liberation for my patients.
I love what I do because I enjoy treating the complicated cases. These are the patients who
have "tried everything" and where "all the tests are negative". These truly are the medical
mysteries that most doctors brush aside as "in your head." Or if they believe you really have
the symptoms and they don't have the answers, then you are left to "cope and deal" with the
pain. I actually enjoy the clinical challenge of complicated cases. This work is medical
detective work. Once the primary and secondary strains are addressed and reduced,
patients feel better. The work is precise but so subtle that it seems unbelievable and almost,
yes, 'miraculous,' as Joslynn will attest. Another heart wrenching case is Kathleen
Baker...hear her testimony: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSqZZCUx-Zs
I attended the University of California at Riverside with a B.S. in biology (4years). I attended
the University of New England, College of Osteopathic Medicine (4 years). I trained in
pediatrics at Loma Linda Children's Hospital (3 years). I've spent 11 years studying and 10
years in practice, that is 21 years of medical knowledge. I still love the pure anatomy,
physiology, embryology and physics behind figuring out the human body. I will continue with
my work in pediatrics and osteopathy for both children and adults for another 30 years.
Please venture into my pages and read the amazing case files I've selected, with
photographic evidence of my work on the complex patients. I am constantly updating this site
and will periodically post more new complicated stories and pictures. Please share my website
with friends, family and co-workers. It is my experience, that every person knows at least 5
people with chronic medical problems and 3 families with children that need treatment, where
they have "tried everything." In the near future, I hope to be able to post more real people
testimonials with video file. In the distant future, I plan on a series of books about my work, the
work of traditional osteopathic physicians and how we diagnose and treat with our hands.

Current Medical Mysteries Cases 12/08 and UPDATES:
1. feet pain - 33yo with feet pain x 3wks; on the 1st visit, after 15min of OMT patient was able
to walk, swelling at bottom of feet reduced by 10%, relief of symptoms lasted x 2days; patient
rescheduled for full OMT visit and after 1hr, swelling is completely resolved, legs feel lighter,
patient is able to walk flat on his feet; past medical history includes, leukemia as a child, bl hip
replacement. Henry went back home to see the orthopedic surgeon who did his surgery. He
continues to have body aches and pain. I agree that he should do all manner of testing to
rule out disease before returning for OMT.
Update - As of April, Henry is now back in Merced, Ca with his family; he could not afford to
stay in LA. He is much worse, he is using a cane and on disability. Based on the state
disability MD's physical exam note, I think they think that he is faking -what a shame. He is still
going to specialists, rheumatologist, and another doc at "Stanford" to try and identify this
'disease.' Meanwhile he found a local DO, who, as he states, "is well versed in our Jedi arts."
Update - As of July, Henry has been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and is on Humira. He
can walk now without pain. He stopped by to visit and was rear-ended on the freeway. We
are going to just watch him for now.
2. neck pain - 42yo w chronic neck pain, back pain, all kinds of pain who has "tried it all." She
recognized my name on a blog and asked if I was the pediatrician she took her daughter to for
After Hours Care. After her first OMT visit she admits to only her head feeling lighter, sinuses
less congested, lasting only one day; pt also reports having a headache after visit. At the end
of the second visit pt admits that her leg pains feel better and she acknowledges that
something has changed only because "they are the only part that don't seem to be hurting
right now." past medical history is significant for 5 car accidents and chiropractic cracking
since 18yrs of age. After 12 visits, Cheryl is now convinced that she is slowly getting better.
As of April 24, 2009 Cheryl's neck pain has reduced to a 5 out of 10, which is tolerable
(previously it was excruciating). She has had 20 visits, total cost to her so far about $400 for
her copays. Small price to pay for freedom. Right Cheryl? (she reads my updates on her
periodically). My current assessment of her is: Her electrical system is finally starting to
reconnect. About 4 more visits and it will be fully online and wired up for us to do more and
she is going to finally turn the corner - we will be able to space out her visits to every other
week x 2-3, then once a month and then every other month. What do I mean by her electrical
system is 'reconnecting.' ? Watch this...
We are now closed

As of July, Cherly is doing really well, although it is taking much longer than I anticipated.
She is now twitching like nobody's business, her legs flopping around like a fresh, caught fish.
She can now turn her head without neck pain. Her periods (previously 39-50 day cycles) are
now regular, without any meds.
