I opened Asheville Healthspan MD in early 2013. My goal was simple; to be the most highly trained, experienced physician practicing hormone optimization—period. Ten years ago, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Rather than put patients at risk, I retired as a surgeon. My love of medicine and helping others stayed with me throughout my time away from the operating room. I wanted to practice medicine but was unsure how this would translate for me during this new chapter of my life. One day, I read about hormone replacement therapies. I was fascinated by the opportunity to help people feel and look better. Even though I wouldn’t be saving lives like I did as a urologist-oncologist, I could still change them for the better.
Restorative medicine is a highly specialized field. There is an art to achieving the balance necessary to get optimal results. I researched how to become specifically certified in hormone management. I immersed myself in a fellowship offered by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. I opened Asheville Healthspan MD in early 2013. My goal was simple; to be the most highly trained, experienced physician practicing hormone optimization—period. Later, the practice added state-of-the-art, physician-led aesthetic services as our patients demanded them. Sexual wellness medicine then followed. Based on my decades of experience with men in this area, I became an expert on helping women achieve their best intimate experiences. And the results have been outstanding—with a capital “O”! Because of my extensive experience, I am able to help my clients beyond typical hormone replacement therapy.
I am an educator speaking on the dangers of menopause, andropause, and how hormone optimization is the most natural and safest way to lower risks of cardiac disease, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, and many other ailments.
I work with patients looking for a physician-supported weight loss program by using hormones in a way that optimizes workouts and energy levels. I’ve diagnosed prostate cancer in a number of patients who would have otherwise gone completely undetected or where detection could have been delayed by years. My background allows me to detect signs in men, sending them directly to a practicing urologist who can confirm the diagnosis and take swift measures to treat this devastating cancer before it can cause harm. We also offer tailored hormone treatment, laser-assisted treatments, and PRP to women with mild to moderate stress urinary incontinence. We perform a procedure in the office, under local anesthesia, using the body’s own growth factors. This procedure has helped patients see significant improvement, if not cessation, of their incontinence.
In 2015, to honor our mission of offering our clients a complete restorative experience, we re-branded the practice to become Biltmore Restorative Medicine and Aesthetics. Our approach at Biltmore Restorative Medicine & Aesthetics looks at the patient as a whole. We don’t focus on just one specific part of the body or disease but rather take a comprehensive approach in our evaluations. Our services are equivalent only to those offered in larger metropolitan areas like Charlotte and Atlanta. In fact, many of our patients consider our services to be superior and fly to us from these cities for treatment. While I am dedicated to helping patients achieve their best quality of life through groundbreaking treatments and a patient-first approach, I am most proud of my roles as the father to three fantastic children, Taylor, Khoury, and George Philip and grandfather to Lily Love. When I am away from the office, I value time with my family and exploring. I am an avid sailor and enjoy hiking, travel, and cooking. We can’t wait to help you feel like YOU again!
