About

Bio

I am a board certified radiologist and completed my residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Yale and a fellowship in Nuclear Medicine at the University of Southern California. My expertise is in cancer imaging, especially PET/CT imaging. I work in Orange County, California. I have been awarded with SuperDoctors 2011 Los Angeles.

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.
