Autoimmune diseases can be debilitating and lower your quality of life. I want to change that. I’ve changed my own life, let’s work together to change yours.
WHAT IS RHEUMATOLOGY?
Rheumatology is a subspecialty of internal medicine that focus on diseases mainly with immune-mediated disorders of the musculoskeletal system, soft tissues, autoimmune diseases, connective tissue diseases, and vasculitides.

Create Individualized Plan
I will then create an individualized plan that will fit their personal needs and goals that combines the philosophies of allopathic medicine, integrative, functional, and lifestyle medicine.
I have experienced many years of pain from my autoimmune disease and arthritis. I understand how it feels to be a patient and understands that not every patient wants pharmaceutical drugs to get better. I have been through the highs and lows of suffering from chronic disease and understand how hard it is to find the right doctor. I still remember the days that I could not walk to work or had to take days off of school due to my chronic illness. Luckily, I don’t have to think about that anymore as a patient as my disease has improved significantly.
I have training in both integrative medicine from the University of Arizona and am certified in lifestyle medicine from the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. I understand the power of pharmaceutical drugs but also know that autoimmune disease can improve through a more holistic route as well. I use the knowledge I have learned from functional, integrative, and lifestyle medicine to develop a unique treatment plan for my patients.
