Dr. Michael Sullivan fuses decades of study in America and India with the remarkable focus that a life practicing yoga can provide. He sees his patient with a very wide angle lens, missing nothing and perceiving tell-tale subtleties that other less gifted might easily miss. Each patient is treated as a unique being, a singular case and challenge. But Dr. Sullivan leaves all of his patients better educated and empowered to manage their own health
