ACAM's Member of the Month: July 2014
"I’ve always been a bit of a rebel, questioning the status quo and looking for ways to make our world a better place. Over 30 years ago, I chose medicine for my career because I believed I could make a meaningful difference, improving the way healthcare is managed and delivered with a more holistic and compassionate approach.”
Combining Science, Experience and Empathy
“After many years working as a Family Practice physician, I yearned for the knowledge to help my patients achieve optimum health and vitality instead of simply treating their symptoms. I enrolled in a two-year training program in Functional Medicine and learned to uncover the hidden causes of symptoms and use natural treatments first instead of medications. Armed with new tools for healing, I opened the Waller Wellness Center (formerly the Rochester Center for Healthy Living) in 2005 to provide a new generation of healthcare.
“I’ve intentionally created a culture of innovation and exploration where we take time to do lengthy interviews, ask the right questions, listen to our patients, use the latest diagnostic tests and investigate complex medical puzzles using a different approach than others have before us. By understanding the underlying causes of our patient’s symptoms, we can empower them with the knowledge, treatments and tools they need to heal themselves.
“I’m proud that my scientific approach to natural medicine has enabled me to significantly improve my patients’ health and vitality and put them on a new path to wellness and longevity."
