About Me

Driven and non conformist physician who has been part of academic and private practice medicine. I realized that we are not integrating a major contributing group into healthcare delivery: the patients and allied health professionals like outpatient nutritionist, mental health experts, fitness experts etc. I created ACHE Institute of Houston to offer an integrative pain medicine approach. Looking to scale the reach of my care delivery model, I came up with the idea for My vision for telehealth is to use it as a longitudinal support for health maintenance. We should not attempt to replace the in office visit, but enhance the reach of health care providers, facilitate communication and collaboration as well as to augment patient engagement.
