Open-minded, whole-picture doctor, committed to your wellbeing.
I chose a career in medicine primarily to fulfil my deep desire to help people thrive. A few years into my medical career, I found myself within the grips of serious burnout: this was a pivotal point for me professionally and personally. Burnout is not an experience I would wish upon anyone, yet it was incredibly valuable because it invited me to look outside of the box of conventional paradigms. I discovered a whole new world of possibilities, for me and for my future patients; possibilities of healing and enduring wellbeing.
Changing my own trajectory inspired and empowered me to change how I practice medicine.
My goal is to identify and tackle the root causes of any health concerns you may have. I stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in diagnosis and treatment of common medical issues, both conventional and complementary. I have an integrative approach to wellbeing, tailored to each person’s needs and circumstances. To optimize outcomes, my management is multifaceted and collaborative, addressing as many modifiable factors as possible. Screening and prevention are integral to my practice. I strive to empower my clients with information, tools and support to help them in their pursuit of health and wellbeing.
Optimism and compassion form the core of my practice. "ZIVIO," which means "celebrate life" in my native Slovak, embodies my approach to life and health. I strive to honor the complexity of your life, embracing both its highs and lows. Though I may not always be able to completely restore your health, my aim is to help you discover the answers you are looking for, enhance your quality of life, and guide you in finding purpose and joy amid your challenges.
