About Me

Hi, my name is John, and I appreciate the opportunity to introduce myself to you. It’s important to me that you know that, to me, your health comes first. 


Raised in Washington, I went to medical school in Seattle before moving to Ventura for my family medicine residency. I met the love of my life here and am excited to make my home here as we begin a family. 

About my practice

I believe that healthy lifestyle decisions and appropriate preventive care are the most important parts of any health care plan. I hope to help my patients create a personalized plan for their acute and chronic health care needs.

How I thrive

I hope to practice what I preach. I try to eat home-cooked food made with recognizable and unprocessed ingredients — at home, we eat a mostly vegetarian diet filled with variety, color, and strong flavors. I try to spend some time outside every day (with varying amounts of success) and to spend time with family and friends. I’m a rock climber and hiker; my hobbies include board games and woodworking.
