I have been practicing Pediatrics for 20 years. A big part of my practice focus has been Pediatric Hospital Medicine—caring for children sick enough to require care in a hospital. I have also practiced Primary Care pediatrics, striving to make sure I understand parents’ and patients’ concerns before collaborating with the family to work out a plan for diagnosis or treatment. I see my role in the care of your child as a “guide in the jungle”—that is, I don’t claim to have all the answers to all the questions, but I do have the knowledge and experience to help find the path through your care that’s right for you.
I earned my BA from Stanford, my MD from UC San Diego, and completed my Pediatric residency at Kaiser Hospital in Oakland, CA. I earned my MBA degree from UC Irvine.
