True Health Medical Center has been providing integrative and biomedical treatments that enhance traditional medical care since 2003.

Welcome to True Health Medical Center. I want to take a moment to thank you for considering True Health Medical Center for your health and well being. The journey that has led me here is a very personal one.

After completing my degree at Indiana University Medical School, I began my residency in Family Practice at Cook County Hospital in Chicago. During residency, I had my first daughter, who had severe food allergies and asthma. My second daughter, who was born shortly after, was diagnosed with juvenile onset diabetes. My third daughter had chemical sensitivities to environmental substances like cleaning agents, perfumes, pesticides, and synthetic clothing. Even with my extensive education and training, I felt ill equipped to handle their medical issues. I began questioning my role as a physician and healer. I wanted to shift my attention from treating the symptoms of their disorders to treating the underlying cause of their disorders. I found traditional medicine unable to provide me with the answers I was looking for.  I wanted to know more about why my children, and so many other children and adults in epidemic proportions, are suffering from chronic degenerative autoimmune disorders, such as asthma, allergies, arthritis, diabetes, OCD, mood disorders, attention-deficit disorder, ADHD, and autism spectrum disorders.

The mission in opening True Health Medical Center came from my journey to help my own children with these chronic disorders to lead productive and healthy lives. This simple dream has been shattered for so many families. My goal as a physician is to use evidence-based research and functional medicine to provide possible solutions and to help rebuild hope for suffering families. Being the senior medical attending physician at the Pfeiffer Treatment Center for five years paved the way for my interest and passion in treating children, specifically in the autism spectrum which I believe includes ADD/ADHD. Over the past 20 years, I have learned that true health can be achieved by transforming the mind, body and spirit back to its natural state.  By focusing on detoxification, immune, gastrointestinal, endocrine, mitochondrial, and methylation issues we are able to address the underlying causes of disease and dysfunction.  Then with the aid of nutraceuticals (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, enzymes, natural hormones, etc.), herbals, probiotics, homeopathics, energy medicine, and pharmaceuticals, the patient and family can begin their metamorphosis.  All of us at True Health Medical Center are dedicated to addressing the healing process from the inside out.

My staff and I are actively involved in numerous organizations such as Defeat Autism Now! and the Autism Research Institute (ARI), National Autism Association (NAA), Autism ONE, and Talk About Curing Autism (TACA), which advocate treating patients using a biomedical approach. These organizations have also brought to the forefront the dangers of environmental toxins leading to autoimmune disorders in susceptible families. As clinicians, our goal is to help every family that enters our office. We strive to stay up-to-date with the latest research, seminars, conferences, and evidence based medicine so that we may provide you with the biomedical interventions that make the most sense for each individual.

Our goal of transforming the mind, body and spirit takes creativity, motivation and determination, but its rewards are immense.

The journey to True Healing and True Health begins here.
