About My Practice

I received my B.A. from Harvard in 1959, and my M.D. from New York University in 1963. After a Graduate Fellowship in Philosophy at the University of Colorado, I completed my internship at St. Anthony's Hospital in Denver, and have practiced general family medicine since obtaining my license in 1967. I became interested in natural therapies in 1970 as part of my home birth practice, and have continued to study and use them ever since.

I have practiced homeopathic medicine since 1974, studying with George Vithoulkas in Greece, Rajan Sankaran and colleagues in India, and other teachers as well. In addition to lecturing and teaching seminars and courses on homeopathy and related subjects, I have written "Plain Doctoring", "The Case Against Immunizations", "Some Thoughts on the Malpractice Crisis", "Why I Became a Homeopath", and other articles from the viewpoint of natural medicine. These are available in hard copy from me, as well as by download on this website. My first book, Homeopathic Medicines for Pregnancy and Childbirth, published in 1992, is still in print. My latest, Resonance: The Homeopathic Point of View, was published by Xlibris in 2001. Both are available from me, or from Minimum Price Books (Blaine, WA), Amazon.com, and on order from local bookstores. Resonance is also available from the publisher, Xlibris, at www.xlibris.com or (888) 795-4274.

I see patients at my office in Watertown. My practice is focused on and more or less limited to education and consultation about the use of homeopathic medicines and other alternatives to prescription drugs and surgery. I do not write prescriptions, perform extensive diagnostic testing, provide inpatient home care, administer vaccinations or routine screening tests, execute legal documents, testify in court, or give disability evaluations.

Appointment hours are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, from 9 a.m. to noon, and from 3 to 6 p.m. After hours and on weekends, established patients with acute medical problems may also page me via beeper (see "To My Patients").

Fees are $250.00 for the first appointment and $95.00 for acute or follow-up visits, payable in cash or by personal check at the time of each visit. Credit cards will not be accepted. For remedy refills, insurance letters, etc., the charge will be $20.00 or more, depending on the office time required to prepare them. A standard medical receipt will be given for reimbursement. Missed appointments will be charged for unless we are notified at least 24 hours in advance. I accept assignment from MEDICARE, but patients seeking reimbursement from Blue Cross or other HMO's or managed care plans will need out-of-plan coverage or a referral for homeopathic treatment from their primary-care provider.

While I cannot guarantee that my treatment will be helpful, I will work diligently on your behalf, soliciting your active participation and informed consent at every stage of the treatment. In return I expect you to be honest and forthcoming about any problems you have in our work together, and to take primary responsibility for your own health and for all decisions regarding your care.
