About

Bio

I am a Family Physician with 23 years experience, did my undergraduate degree in biochemistry at UCLA, MD at New York Medical College, residency at UC San Diego, and have worked in a variety of civilian and military healthcare settings over the years. I am married with four boys, volunteer in youth coaching and service groups, and enjoy running, biking, and open water swimming. I practice full scope Family Medicine with patients of all ages and medical conditions, with special interest in sports medicine, geriatrics, diabetes, asthma, and preventive medicine.

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.
