I realized that wellness medicine was the future of medicine and wanted to learn about Age Management Medicine to provide exercise, nutritional, hormonal, and metabolic care as the primary focus of my medical practice. I learned first hand that diet and exercise alone were not enough to get real results and discovered the critical importance of optimizing hormones after either andropause or menopause.
