About

Bio

Thank you for your interest in my services. I have been in practice in the Beverly Hills area for the past 12 years. As a physician interested in your wellbeing and health, I have learned that the ability to patiently listen is an important skill. Thereafter, being able to communicate my findings in order to help empower you is my goal. I want to offer you specific insights in order to help optimize your health with the least amount of medications. I believe in diet, exercise and healthy living as the back bone of great long term health. When medications are indicated however, I do not hesitate to prescribe them My office is designed around your needs. I do not use a nurse and believe that this helps me get closer to my patients in all aspects. I contact you personally with your lab results and am available to you by phone after hours directly without any voice messaging systems or operators. When I moved back to LA in 1999 after my training in Pennsylvania, I had the option of joining a large group but would have had to give up my freedom to manage patients as I felt appropriate. In the end I took the more difficult road of working as a solo practitioner. Practicing now for 10 years, I am glad to have taken this path. My patients, have direct access to me after hours by cell phone and by email and I am the only one that sees them in the hospital unless I am out of town. This is something that is quiet rare in this town. Many Physicians no longer bother rounding on their patients if they get admitted to a Hospital as it is not worth their time. In my opinion, the continuity of care is important and a patient deserves to be seen by the Doctor that knows them best. That, being their outpatient physician, not some random doc that shows up when they are admitted to the hospital. There is no trust in those relationships. I am associated with Cedars Sinai Medical Center.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
