About

Bio

I have practiced medicine in Northern CA all of my career and have been helping patients by video and teleconferencing during the past 10 years. I believe this is an excellent way to obtain personal medical care for many problems and yet avoid the time issues of making and keeping a doctors' appointment.

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.
