“To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease.”
A.Still, MD, DO Philosophy of Osteopathy
As a child growing up in Fortaleza, Brazil, I always knew I wanted to be a doctor. During my journey of becoming a doctor, I found myself more interested in practicing functional medicine. Getting to know my patients, their lifestyle and health history allows me to provide the highest quality of care and develop a unique plan for each and every patient I serve. Traditional medicine too often focuses on treating a problem or a symptom. But how do we prevent it? How do we identify the root cause? More importantly, what can we do to optimize your health and keep it?
I have been practicing in the Chicago area for over 10 years and have seen the health system become increasingly broken and impersonal.
I believe that practicing integrative medicine, and providing a holistic approach will lead to a higher level of care and ultimately better health outcomes.
