About Me

Thank you for visiting my Web page. I appreciate the opportunity to introduce myself, and share a bit about my practice.


I was born in Los Angeles, and raised in Northern Orange County. I attended Servite High School, near the hospital where I now work. I received my undergraduate degree in history, and later my medical degree at University of Southern California. I completed residency in neurological surgery at Syracuse University in New York, and practiced neurosurgery for eleven years in Rochester, New York, where I was affiliated with the University of Rochester School of Medicine. I returned to Southern California when I joined the staff at our Lakeview Medical Offices.

About my practice

I am board-certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgeons. My practice concerns the diagnosis and treatment of neurologic conditions that may be amenable to surgical treatment.

How I thrive

I enjoy the practice of neurosurgery, and take satisfaction each time I can help an individual patient recover from a difficult health condition. For relaxation and recreation, I enjoy sailing, skiing, hiking, and bicycling with my four sons.
