Welcome to my Web page. Thank you for taking the time to review my credentials and information. It’s very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I was born and raised in Southern California. I went to medical school at Western University in Pomona, did my residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Nassau University Medical Center in New York, and completed my fellowship in pain medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. The experience treating patients across the country was great, but there is no place like home.
The interaction between patient and doctor is exactly why I went into medicine. I feel this relationship is built by listening and discussing issues, and it helps us to hopefully change lives by guiding patients to a better state of health. I strive to treat every member as if he or she were my family member because I feel that is the best way to practice medicine. Increasing function and quality of life is my goal for member care.
I feel blessed every day for my family, friends, and career. Getting to spend time with these people by enjoying a good meal together, taking a walk, going to the beach, or swimming is how I live well.
