About Me

Hi, and welcome to my Web page. I am glad to introduce myself.


I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and moved to Southern California as a young child. After attending medical school on the East Coast, I returned to California to do my residency at Loma Linda University. I then spent 13 years in Portland, Oregon, in a private practice, but came back to California to be closer to family and friends.

About my practice

I feel that good healthcare is an interactive process between the physician and the patient. I want my members to understand the medical process as well as all their treatment options. Communication is very important. I welcome and encourage my members to ask questions.

How I thrive

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, surfing, cycling, and reading.
