Welcome to Our Practice.

Welcome! We wish to welcome you to Dermatology, Nutrition, & Allergy Associate (DNA) Associates. DNA Associates is a fusion of Eastern and Western Medicine, Energy Medicine, Conventional Allopathic Medicine and Integrative Functional Medicine. It is our genuine wish to assist you to achieve a better quality of life and to restore health and healing. Healing is a journey. It takes time to heal and it takes a lot of work with dedicated commitment from both the patient and practitioner. We believe that patient and the practitioner can become a team. The practitioner does the searching for a root cause of these “dis-eases”and the patient does his/her part by modifying diet, lifestyle, exercise and taking nutrients/medication etc. These “dis-eases” presenting as inflammation or other clinical symptoms can result from deficiencies of vitamins/minerals, genetic defects, toxins or infections present in the body. We believe in preventative medicine via optimization of the endocrine (i.e. thyroid, adrenal, hormones), in addition to using IV infusion of minerals/vitamins to remove the toxins and to effectively replace the chemical defects. We believe in providing the most effective, advanced technologies, i.e. AO SCAN BODY ANALYZER, to bring about a better quality of life and remove the “dis-eases”.

We appreciate the opportunity to assist you and your family to achieve your goals in wellness.

  • Providing utmost personal care & service.

We have also demonstrated the highest level of expertise during our teaching tenure and private practice focusing on adults and pediatrics, wound healing of ulcers, and skin manifestations of systemic diseases, specially searching for the root causes of the intractable skin issues. We use various blood or urine and allergy testing for airborne/environmental allergens, food sensitivities/allergies, and the AO SCAN BODY ANALYZER, to assist us in detecting the underlying “dis-eases”.
