I am a Toronto-trained Urologist: I practiced, freelance, in downtown Toronto, from 1977 to 1997.
My 3 main hospitals, the Doctors’, the Central and the Wellesley, were closed in 1997.
I went to Saudi Arabia, to be chief of Urology for the Armed Forces teaching hospital in Tabuk (North-West KSA).
Returning to Ontario in Y2000, I quit Urology and joined a family practice in Etobicoke.
In 2007 I became aware of the progressive loss of hormone production which starts at age 26 in both males and females.
After studying the subject, I began to prescribe bioidentical hormones for my patients.
In 2012, I became a member of the American Academy of Antiaging Medicine [A4M] and started their two-year course of study.
I wrote their examination successfully in December of 2013 and began a BHRT practice in 2014.
The majority of my patients benefited from hormone balancing, so In October of 2015, I stopped accepting new family practice patients and concentrated on Bioidentical Hormone Restoration Therapy.
In May 2016, I passed the A4M’s oral examination, achieving certification as a BIHRT consultant and in January of 2017, I joined the Stone Tree Naturopathic Clinic, in Collingwood, Ontario.
I HAVE NOW RETIRED
I have retired from medical practice, but it seems wasteful to jettison my learning and experience.
The medical establishment disregards and ignores the hormonal aspect of our metabolic function and I feel obliged to offer my knowledge to all who wish to read these pages, in the interest of helping those who think outside the box.
This website therefore provides three services:
(1) Background information to explain hormone deficiency and its management,
(2) A blog, about interesting developments in medicine, in which I do my best to keep you up-to-date regarding BHRT.
(3) A list of URLs to interesting papers, not confined to HRT matters, which I consider important.
