About

Bio

Originally from Minnesota and Upstate New York, I migrated to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2004 to follow my dreams of becoming a tech entrepreneur after completing my medical training and MBA at Fuqua and Duke University School of Medicine. But alas medicine has been my calling and now I am board certified in Internal Medicine ready to diagnose and treat all sorts of non-surgical ailments. Having completed residency at Stanford, I currently practice in Santa Clara and in Palo Alto, California and volunteer at several non-profit clinics in San Jose and help orphaned pets at the local humane society. I love to hike around the Stanford DISH, pet random pets and agonize over my fantasy football team. Hope you find my assessments and recommendations useful.

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.
