When Doctors Bully…

As an intern, I was assigned a rotation, where I prepared patients for surgery. During this prep process, I asked patients an unexpected but critically important question: “Do you want to have surgery?” As it turned out, most of them didn’t want surgery.

Save Your Brain

Alzheimer’s is one of the most devastating and dreaded diseases I’m confronted with at my South Florida anti-aging clinic.

An Ancient Fix For Backache

Too many doctors refuse to think outside the narrow confines of the mainstream medical establishment – especially when it comes to chronic back pain.
