Bio

I'm a hospitalist physician at a large county hospital in southern California where I encounter a large variety of medical disorders. I specialize in a wide variety of adult diseases involving all internal organs, infections, disease prevention, health/nutrition. I'm up to date with the latest treatment guidelines - feel free to involve me in your medical care; I'm sure I can make a difference.

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.

Absolutely: Many medical conditions develop slowly and are asymptomatic in the early stages. Symptoms sometimes develop in there later stages. Also people have different perspectives of their pain and symptoms.
A 30-year-old female asked:

Not much: Over-the-counter medications are unlikely to treat your infection. Bacterial vaginosis is treated with medicine. Two different medicines can be used. They are called: metronidazole clindamycin both of these medicines come in different forms. They can come as a pill or as a gel or cream that a woman puts inside her vagina. Most women have fewer side effects when they use the gel or cream treatment.

Yes: Loss of voice is usually due to laryngitis it may last a couple of days but usually recovers without any complications. Treatment is supportive without the need of any medications. If however your sore throat gets worse with high fevers and increased cough you should see a physician for pharyngitis. This is also usually viral and does not need any medications, however rarely strep throat maybe diagnosed which does need antibiotics.
