Phil is a naturopathic physician with a focus in men’s health and cancer treatment. He believes that it is crucial to combine the best practices of conventional medicine with the best practices of complementary and alternative medicine. Only through a team approach, with each health care provider bringing his or her expertise, can medicine truly provide innovative care. The goal of treatment should not be merely managing a diagnosis, but to help each person to thrive.
