I recently finished my dermatology residency and had over two dozen job offers for dermatology positions in Southern California. I chose to work here at Kaiser Permanente for the same reason you chose Kaiser Permanente for your health care: because it is the best health organization in the country.
I grew up in a small Italian neighborhood that is a suburb of Providence, RI. Like my father and two brothers, I graduated from Providence College. I went to graduate school, along with my wife, at Brown University where I studied biochemistry. After we finished, she and I moved to North Carolina where I became the project director of a national study of stroke patients at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. I then went to Wake Forest University for medical school where I was ranked number one in my medical school class, served as class president and served as president of the North Carolina Beta Chapter of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. Moving then to California, I did my dermatology residency at UC Irvine where I served as chief resident. I have been with Kaiser Permanente since completing my residency in 2007. I am board certified in dermatology.
About my practice
I am pleased to work with such intelligent, skilled, and dedicated physicians as we have here in dermatology. I practice at Clairemont Mesa daily Monday through Friday except for Tuesdays when I am in the San Marcos clinic. I am fortunate to have been trained by some of the most renowned medical and surgical dermatologists in the country. I enjoy seeing members of all ages with medical or surgical skin problems and am happy to see you for your simple warts or your complex skin disease.
How I thrive
I am a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and have lobbied with senators and congressmen in Washington, DC on behalf of the American Academy of Dermatology Association. I am a member of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, and the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. In addition to politics, I enjoy bodybuilding and writing a blog.
