i grew up in northern NJ, USA and have 6 brothers and sisters.
I went to school at US Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD and USU School of Medicine in Bethesda, MD. I trained in internal Medicine at Naval Medical Center San Diego, CA and in Nephrology in Hypertension at UC San Diego School of Medicine. I am board certified in Internal Medicine and Nephrology.
I have special training in diving/hyperbaric/undersea medicine.
I live in San Diego, CA with my beautiful wife and children.
I believe a healthy lifestyle (proper diet, lots of physical activity) is the best way to health and try to live this every day/set a good example for my patients.
I really like HealthTap and i hope that i am able to help complete strangers understand their illnesses and stay well. Knowledge is power and sharing is good!
