About

Bio

I graduated from the MD/Phd Program at Northwestern University - and trained in Internal Medicine and Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at UCSD. Currently I practice at UCSD in San Diego as well as Kindred LTAC and Scripps Encinitas. I also do research on stem cells trying to harness them as a potential therapy for chronic lung diseases like COPD and IPF. I am currently not accepting clinic patients (I am currently practicing solely in the ICU).

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.
