About

Bio

I am a Board Certified Otolaryngologist-Head and Neck Surgeon, AKA Ear, Nose and Throat doctor. I currently practice at the University of California, San Francisco as an Otolaryngology Hospitalist. At UCSF, we are pioneering hospital-based practices to focus on the specific needs of patients in the acute care setting. In addition, UCSF is committed to Patient Safety and Quality Improvement, in which I also participate.

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.
