 I am a licensed and registered Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist in Milton Ontario.  I have been working professionally in this field for over 12 years.  In my clinical practice, I strive to combine the application of traditional and complementary medicine with modern science.

I work with patients who have a variety of health concerns such as pain (arthritis, sports injuries), pediatric health concerns, diabetes, gastrointestinal disease, and heart disease and more.

In addition to general practice, my clinical focus is on women’s health – specifically fertility and peri-natal health(pregnancy and post-delivery). I am also very experienced in treating pain. I get great results with sports injuries, back/neck pain, sciatica, etc.

I graduated from McGill University with a Bachelor of Science in Physiology and also attained my PhD in pharmaceutical sciences from the University of Toronto. I did my post doctoral fellowship at McMaster University. I continue to remain actively involved in academic research and lecturing at various post-secondary institutions across southern Ontario.
