About

Bio

A graduate of the University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kansas City, MO in 2000, I went on to a residency in Family Medicine in NY and then a fellowship in sports medicine in CA. I served as a team physician and adjunct faculty at SDSU from 2003-2008. In '08 I traveled back to NY to become a university professor at a medical school and develop my own fellowship program in sports medicine. I have served as a team physician on every level of competition, from recreational to professional and Olympic levels. I have most recently served as a team physician for USA Volleyball and have traveled to Canada and Poland with the teams. In 2011 I moved back to the San Diego area to be closer to family and enjoy the terrific southern CA lifestyle. I am currently working in a few Urgent Care centers awaiting the opening of my new office in North San Diego county. My belief is that a doctor is first a teacher. In order for a doctor and patient to be a good match, both of them need to see eye to eye and be treated as equals. Without a basic understanding of their condition and knowledge of treatments options, a patient can not be a partner in their care. Without an understanding of what a patient expects to get out of their treatment a doctor can not be an effective adviser. The doctor/ patient team needs to work together to reach a mutually beneficial goal. I do my best to achieve this with each of my patients.

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.
