Welcome to my Web page. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me.
I was born in a suburb of Detroit, and remained in Michigan all the way through medical school. I moved to California for my surgical training, and realized pretty quickly that sunny California would be my home. In my free time, I enjoy downhill skiing, hiking, watching Michigan football, and spending time with my twin toddlers. I appreciate good food and wine. Whenever I get the chance, I like trying new restaurants.
I believe in treating every patient with compassion and care based on current research. Good communication is vital, and I will do my best to explain things in a way that is clear to you. I am board-certified in otolaryngology as well as facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. My specialties include nasal surgery and facial reconstruction following skin cancer removal.
Optimism, faith, and staying physically active keep me balanced. My twins keep me laughing. My wife, who is a physical therapist and Pilates instructor, keeps me fit.
