Dr. Zand’s Philosophy

“I have a great passion for education my patients about their health so that they feel empowered to make informed decisions regarding their care.  I believe that this enables patients to fundamentally understand the determinants of their health and therefore become empowered to sustainably structure their lifestyle in order to meet their health goals.

I have a great deal of experience and passion for treating Mold, EBV, Lyme, and other biological infections, as they constitute a massively underdiagnosed and undertreated sector of our health system.” 

What Makes Dr. Zand Different

Dr. Zand believes that every patient is unique and thus each patient should be treated as such. Through the use of comprehensive laboratory blood testing, in-depth patient history, symptom assessment, and physical examination, unique treatment plans will be given to each patient. Dr. Zand believes in identifying the root cause of patient’s illnesses rather than treating the symptom.

Dr. Zand has a true passion for empowering his patients along the journey to optimal health and wellbeing, including the management of health and hormonal optimization.
