About

Bio

I'm a Board Certified Emergency Physician, practicing in Northern California. I also have a scientific background, with a PhD in Molecular Biology & Genetics. I also practiced Emergency Medicine in New Zealand, which was an amazing experience. I specialize in the treatment of acutely ill patients, in all areas of medicine and surgery. From traumatic injury, to heart attack, stroke, infections, OB/Gyn emergencies, toxicology, etc. I see it and treat it all, all ages, all comers.

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.

Wear and tear: "Degenerative changes" means that the shoulder joint shows evidence of what you might call "wear and tear." Could be due to arthritis (osteoarthritis), overuse, prior injury, etc. It also means there is no quick fix for the shoulder pain. Physical therapy, exercises as tolerated, and possibly anti-inflammatory medications could be helpful.

Referral needed: Your primary care doctor is the best source of information for local referrals, and if and when they're needed. GI specialists typically won't see new patients unless referred by a primary doctor or if there's a true emergency (and then only after being evaluated in the ER and/or as a hospital inpatient).

UTI: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is most likely, but could also be vaginitis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), or other infection. See your doctor or urgent care for a urine test and possible pelvic examination.
