Hi! I’m Dr. Rupie, Welcome to my site!
I hope you’ll find what you’re looking for here. My passion is to educate people about their health by simplifying the medical world. I love teaching and explaining topics, especially those that some may consider uncomfortable or embarrassing to ask or talk about. My mission is to help you take charge and improve your health by helping you understand more. There’s an overwhelming amount of information out there to wade through. It’s hard to figure out who and what is reliable and what is not. I will provide you with easy to understand information and links to reliable sources. Having been in practice for over a decade, I’ve seen what a huge difference a little guidance and easy to understand explanations can make. I’ll share information with you just as I would with a friend. Expect to hear it all, no holds barred.
I hope you find my videos and articles helpful, please share if you do!
With Love and Aloha,
