About

Bio

I studied Biochemistry at the University of California Berkeley. I enjoyed teaching Organic Chemistry while there. I studied medicine at Finch University Chicago Medical School. I trained in Internal medicine at the University of Arizona. I have practiced Emergency Medicine since 1995 when I started moonlighting. I currently practice both as a Hospitalist and in the Emergency Room. I have served in two states Texas and Arizona and have worked in several hospitals ranging from Level 3 trauma Centers to Community Hospitals. I am currently also available for house calls in the Tucson area for a fee for service basis. At this time I do not have insurances set up but will in the near future

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.
