About

Bio

I was born and raised in California and currently live in Visalia with my wife and three children. I went to UC Berkeley for my B.A. in Genetics, UC San Diego for Medical School and UC Davis for General Surgery and Plastic Surgery. I am certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and have been since 2000.

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.
