My research and clinical works focus in the field of General medicine is to make the aging process simple, straight forward, unconfusing, uncomplicated, and a happy, joyful journey. There are unlimited number of recommendations for living a healthy and happy life. However, much of the information on this subject is confusing, hard and too technical to understand, and often impossible to follow. My goal is to clarify many of these misconceptions and simplify the journey for the general public. That includes the senior population, their children and grandchildren.

Clinical Trials


  • Quality of Life in Adults Impaired Functioning - A Randomized Controlled Trial of Bidet vs Usual Toileting Recruiting

    Our expectations (hypotheses) are: Primary outcome 1. Regular bidet use will improve quality of life around elimination in adults with impaired functional status. Functional status will be measured by activities of daily living (ADL). 2. Regular bidet use by adults with impaired functional status will improve the quality of life around toileting for their caregivers. Secondary 3. Regular bidet use will reduce the incidence, frequency and severity of constipation (as measured by self-report) in adults with impaired functional status. 4. Regular bidet use will reduce the incidence of urinary tract infection (UTI) in adult women with impaired functional status.
