About

Bio

I am a Board Certified Pediatrician who trained in Hawaii and obtained my fellowship in Adolescent Medicine at UCLA. I was an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Nevada School of Medicine for 3 years and now I am in private practice in Las Vegas for the past 11 years.

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.
