Dr. K and his Heart and Health Associates are the absolute best. Dr. K saved my life when he diagnosed me when all other doctors thought it was just the flu. I owe my life to them. And to put the cream on top, they have bedside manner like no other. When I lost my job, he continued to see me and worked out payments. He cared more about my health then getting paid. Just come in and see for yourself.

His genuine interest in prevention has given him a unique perspective in healing and rejuvenation, combining Eastern medical techniques with Western medicine. He believes that the human body should be treated as a whole.

“In today’s world, we are inundated with different stressors that can cause significant health issues. If we were to take a keen assessment of our current health status using the most current technology, we can deliver a health plan that can improve our health and cardiovascular system. This will optimize our body’s metabolism and health and further reduce the risk of developing chronic illness.”
