About

Bio

I have been a family physician for 25 years. My private practice was opened in 1990 with 1 patient per week. Now my office sees about 800 patients per month and has taken care of over 250,000 people over my career. I have a son going to college next year, a step daughter in college and my fiance has gone back to school as well. I grew up in New York and trained in Florida before moving to southern california to start my medical practice.
