About Me

Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I hope this page gives you a chance to learn a little about my qualifications and me.


I was born on Long Island, New York, but grew up in San Diego. I come from a medical family and saw firsthand how a caring doctor could really affect people's lives. After leaving town for medical school, I stayed away for 15 years in various training and staff positions. However, the people, beauty, and family ties in San Diego brought me back.

About my practice

Our team is committed to providing you with the best orthopedic/musculoskeletal care. I am board certified in general orthopedic surgery and have extra training and qualifications in hand surgery.

How I thrive

My major focus is my family and I have a lovely wife and three children. Through them and for them I work to thrive emotionally, physically, and spiritually. We are active as a family in our local church, and do many outdoor activities including biking, skiing, running, and occasionally sailing (though we are still learning). I also enjoy wilderness backpacking with old medical school friends when I get the chance.
