About

Bio

I am a practicing Obstetrician/Gynecologist in Southern California. I have been practicing for 40 years and have been continually board certified in my specialty since 1980. I have delivered over 8,000 babies and performed thousands of major and minor gynecologic procedures during my career. I actively keep up with the specialty and belief that my experience can assist you in understanding your ob/gyn issues and get the best help from your chosen health care provider.

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.
