This is the portal for current and prospective students interested in not merely learning, but exploring and discovering the wonders of the world through the natural and medical sciences!

After a decade of working as a surgeon I decided to dedicate myself to the singular goal of preventing the suffering caused by lifestyle-related chronic disease.  I do this by dedicating myself to my two professional passions: lifestyle medicine health coaching and teaching.

Over the years I have had the pleasure of working with a wide variety of students, from gifted and highly motivated high school students to professionals keen to hone their knowledge and skills.

I enjoy working with a wide range of students, including:

  • Post-graduate: Experienced doctors, hospital executives and surgical residents.
  • Graduate Students: Healthcare students (MD, DO, DPT, DPM, ND, PA, NP, OT, RN) including Harvard medical students.
  • Undergraduate Students: Students enrolled in pre-health programs (pre-med, pre-nursing, pre-dental, nursing).
  • Gifted High School Students: Highly-motivated students with a keen interest in biological, health & medical sciences and eager to establish robust foundations.
  • Life-long Learners: Adults with a growth mindset and an insatiable intellectual curiosity including company presidents, C-suite executives and retirees.

If you love to learn, then I want to teach you.

Given that I split my time between my two passions of health coaching and teaching, I  only work (one-on-one or with very small groups) with a very small and select number of highly-motivated students each semester (year-round, including summers). This small teacher-student ratio allows me to get to know each of my students, develop a unique rapport, and this usually leads to months and years of fruitful and rewarding collaboration and great academic accomplishments.

If you would like to work with me then contact me for a Complimentary 15-minute Phone Consultation to discuss your particular needs (Click on the button below and please select "ELITE Academy" as a Subject).

Thank you for visiting and I look forward to hearing from you!
