My professional career began as a pharmacist, followed by medical school, anesthesia residency and a fellowship in Cardiac & Thoracic Anesthesia at New York University.  I was a medical team member that performed the first adult open-heart surgery, first pediatric open-heart surgery and the first transplant surgery in the Bahamas.

As an anesthesiologist I saw first hand the end results of chronic degenerative diseases and noted that modern medicine is more concerned with disease maintenance and treatment of symptoms, than maintenance of health and cure.

This lead me on a journey to look for the root causes of the chronic degenerative diseases that have become epidemic in the modern world.  It was surprising to learn that many diseases could be prevented and treated by changes in diet, judicious use of nutritional supplements, moderate exercise, detoxification and safe, non-toxic therapeutic modalities.

For me the Blake Integrative Medical Clinic is the culmination of continued medical education in the areas of nutrition, orthomolecular, bio-energy, bio-oxidative and bio-molecular medicine.  This clinic allows me the opportunity to share this knowledge with my patients – so that perhaps, I won’t have to see them on the operating table!
