About me

Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. My colleagues and I in the Neurology Department work with your primary care doctor to care for your child’s health.

Biography

I am originally from the Chicago area, but I had the opportunity to live in different parts of the country during my training before moving to San Diego. I am passionate about children’s health, and, if we meet, I will encourage you to make sure your kids stay active, fit, and trim. My kids played soccer from kindergarten through high school, and they have remained active in college, which has helped keep them trim and emotionally healthy.

About my practice

I specialize in child neurology, with my main focus on epilepsy. I am fortunate to work with a great group of pediatricians who have a comprehensive understanding of neurological conditions involving children. This allows me to focus on the more difficult and unusual neurological problems.

How I thrive

I strongly believe in staying healthy and enjoying life. Spending time with my family (wife, two kids, and one big dog) is my major priority. Running and walking our Great Dane keeps me active and fit.
