About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I am glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials and share other information about myself. It is 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 grew up in Southern California, went to Loyola High School in Los Angeles and then attended USC, where I graduated with honors in the biological sciences. I went on to UC San Francisco for medical school, as my dream was to merge my love for science with the opportunity to help people.

About my practice

My goal is to provide guidance and understanding of the allergic conditions that trouble my patients. Better awareness provides a framework for my patients to better take care of any health issues affecting them. In addition, they have easy access to my office through available means, including email, when help is needed. This means we work together as a team for a better life, free of problems.

How I thrive

I stay healthy by being active with my family and son. We eat healthy food at home, doing much of our own cooking. I have been involved in the martial art called Wing Chun Kung Fu for several years. It's great for both physical and mental fitness. have also dabbled in magic since my father first showed me a coin trick as a child. I have a large collection of handcrafted, limited-edition magic apparatus and I am a member of both the Society of American Magicians and the International Brotherhood of Magicians. One passion I share with my teenage son is computer gaming. We are both very active in the online multiplayer game Star Wars, The Old Republic. The one goal I need to work on is mastering the guitar—I have three of them at home.
