I have over 15 years of experience and am certified in both Family Medicine and Integrative Holistic Medicine by the American Board. I am also a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Medicine and have a faculty position at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington DC as a Clinical Associate Professor in the family medicine department.
