Dr. Kochler does not serve as a primary care physician and is not affiliated with any hospital or insurance programs.

After completing training in internal medicine, Dr. Kochler worked for 12 years as an emergency medicine (EM) physician at NAM Hospital on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. During that time he became board certified in EM. The EM certification opened the door for locum tenens work in various ERs and trauma centers on the East Coast of the U.S. from PA to FL. He also worked in Cody, WY and Guam for 9 months, both in the ER and with two multi-specialty groups, doing urgent care. Dr. Kochler has an enormous amount of clinical experience over 15 years in both EM and primary care. Through over a total of 30 years of clinical experience, he has acquired the expertise and a keen sense of "what to do, and what not to do". Much thought is given to every aspect of "dis-ease" in an extremely comprehensive process of deliberation, ie: (your root canals in your teeth may be "short circuiting" their associated organ system channel).

Pharmaceuticals may be appropriate for short term acute intervention, but are not well suited for life-long symptom suppression.

The current natural anti-aging medical practice continues to evolve weekly, as further information is constantly acquired from publications, networking with colleagues and collaborators, conferences, etc. The intention now, via the virtual format of the internet, is to try to reach more people throughout the Virginia region.
