About

Bio

For the last 35 years I have been in private practice practicing mainly nephrology. I. am a board-certified internist and nephrologist. Nephrology is the branch of internal medicine that deals with kidney disease as well as diseases which cause kidney dysfunction. I deal with kidney transplants and their complications, chronic dialysis patients and their complications as well as seriously ill patients in three different hospitals in Torrance, San Pedro and the south bay area of Los Angeles. As a Nephrologist I see many very acutely ill patients with a variety of problems not just kidney disease. These patients tend to be extremely complex as well as extremely ill. Many have infectious diseases, heart disease, liver disease and gastrointestinal disease which all effect the kidney.

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.
