Your one source for authentic Ayurvedic medicine treatments,
information and research

I am pleased to announce that after 31 years, I will be closing my New York medical practice and moving permanently to the Dominican Republic to be the medical director of The Dominican Institute of Ayurvedic Medicine (DIAM). We will be operating under the auspices of both The Indian Consulate of the Dominican Republic and AYUSH (a division of the Central Government of India).

I will continue my Ayurvedic medical practice in the DR, but will be devoting much my time to Ayurvedic medicinal plant research, teaching Ayurvedic principles, and further clinical studies of Panchakarma, which will continued to be offered at our new home for Panchakarma Services at the elegant Lifestyles Spa in Puerto Plata, DR.

I will return to the New York area three times a year and continue to consult with individuals in a non-medical capacity purely as an Ayurvedic consultant.

I will also consult with individuals who travel to see me at my new Ayurvedic offices and Panchakarma facilities in Santiago and Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, starting in May 2015.

Further details are provided in the "circle links" below and in the other links on this page which will be frequently updated as new information becomes available.
