Favorite Part About Being a Doctor
“Educating people on how to remain healthy. Taking care of disease is straightforward. But trying to get people to not get to that point is what I find most rewarding.”

About Dr. Rob

With certificates in both integrative health and functional medicine, Dr. Rob provides integrative, holistic care to patients throughout every stage of life. Over nearly two decades as a family practice doctor, he’s educated patients on how to remain healthy, while trying to reduce the need for medication.

“If a patient comes to me with an idea or something new they’ve heard about, I always listen,” he says. “If I’m not familiar with whatever it is, I’ll research it so that my patient and I can learn together. My goal is to serve as a guide.”

Dr. Rob’s integrative and functional approach means looking beyond the typical Western medical remedies (think pharmaceuticals) and considering the impact of an individual’s environment, gut health, and supplement usage (just to name a few items) on a patient’s overall health.

He also holds a nutritional biochemistry certificate, which enables him to dig deeper into his patients' diet and supplementation. He has experience with cutting-edge functional medicine strategies such as analyzing minerals in the hair, organic acid testing of urine, yeast overgrowth, bacterial overgrowth, or even if there are too many toxins in the body. 

“A lot of health can be traced back to balance. Even if you eat the best possible diet, you’re still going to be deficient in certain vitamins and minerals,” he says. “To balance, most people will need vitamin D, magnesium, sometimes vitamin C, and omega-3 fatty acids.”

Dr. Rob’s Philosophy of Care

“The main drive I have for people is to learn how to be healthy and stay healthy, and not ever need medicine.” 

By combining his integrative, functional approach with the relationships he can develop with his patients thanks to being a concierge doctor, Dr. Rob aims to uncover health problems before they start to cause issues. 

“I like to get a sense of my patients’ medical history, where they are at now, and where they came from,” he says. “I want to understand their expectations and how they see themself progressing, so we can figure out what to do differently in order to achieve their goals.”

Dr. Rob: Beyond the Exam Room

Dr. Rob is a spartan race aficionado. He started spartan racing in 2013 after his sister suggested he try one out. At the start, he was doing 1 to 3 a year. Now, he does between 12 and 15 each year. “I did the first one in New York with my sister, and it was game on at that point,” he says. “I initially thought I could maybe do a 10-miler, but never a 12- or 15-mile race. 40 races later, here we are.” 

He’s traveled all over the country for spartan racing, including his favorite races in Montana, Lake Tahoe, the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, and Vermont. And he always makes sure to compete in the Atlanta Spartan races each year. 

A New York native, Dr. Rob now lives in Dallas, Ga., with his wife. Beyond spartan races, he loves traveling to new places.
