Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this opportunity to introduce my practice and myself to you.
I was born and trained in Sweden. I received my medical degree from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. I completed my residency in internal medicine and fellowship in gastroenterology and hepatology at the University Hospital in Uppsala, Sweden, where I subsequently earned my doctorate in clinical hepatology. I have extensive clinical and research experience in the field of liver diseases as well as other gastrointestinal disorders, such as peptic ulcer disease and celiac disease. I came to the United States for postdoctoral research. I studied immunological factors in celiac disease at UC San Diego, where I also completed a residency in internal medicine prior to starting working at Kaiser Permanente.
About my practice
I am a strong believer in healthy living and that it is never too late to change our lifestyle. Healthy living can improve the most common liver problems I see in my practice—including obesity and fatty liver disease, which both are risk factors for progression of other liver diseases, such as chronic Hepatitis C. I strive to always provide the best possible care according to the latest practice guidelines. I have received the Elizabeth Schilling Award for compassionate care and a physician distinction merit award for excellence in care from Kaiser Permanente. I’m also an investigator in numerous clinical trails at our Otay Mesa and San Marcos medical centers.
How I thrive
Spending time with my family is very important for me. I have a wonderful wife and four children: a daughter and three sons. I love jogging in the San Diego canyons during the summer and cross-country or downhill skiing in Mammoth during the winter.
