About

Bio

I love to care for patients from delivery to the grave . I am a fanatic SF Giants and BYU Cougar fan. I still actively deliver babies, assist in surgery and have an active inpatient and outpatient practice. I have been in practice for over 22 years. P.S. I am currently not actively working, medically retired. But, hope to be able to return to my physical practice soon.

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.
