I’ve written, co-written, and ghost-written a dozen books about a wide variety of medical topics, including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, fitness, memory and brain health, nutrition, preventive medicine, and more. If you have a manuscript that needs to be rewritten, edited, or vetted for scientific accuracy, I can do that, too.
