He has a thriving TeleMedicine Medical Weight Loss practice in Phoenix, Arizona. He completed his Doctor of Osteopathy at Des Moines University and his Emergency Medicine Residency at Midwestern University in Chicago, Illinois. He lectured nationally in emergency medicine where his old residency colleague told him that he was “fat”, but could do something about it. After losing 61 pounds in less than 12 weeks, he decided to learn more about obesity medicine and joined the Obesity Medical Association. He became board certified in obesity medicine and has lectured nationally on the topic.
