Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page! I am a general pediatrician and hospitalist specializing in newborn care. It is a privilege to care for your child in our state-of-the-art hospital.
I was born and raised in Southern California, and I have been fortunate to live in Los Angeles, San Diego, and the San Francisco Bay area. I come from a large family, and have always enjoyed teaching, coaching, and caring for children. I am married, and have three fantastic children. Most of my volunteer time is spent at our parish school, but in the past I have served on medical mission trips.
In the newborn nursery, on the pediatric floor, or in the emergency room, our team will do all we can to deliver the highest quality care possible to your child. Staying healthy is as important as getting treatment, so I often focus on how to prevent illness. It is essential that concerns about your child’s care are addressed, and that you understand both the nature of the problem and possible treatment options.
To maintain my own wellness, I make an effort to live in the moment. I try to eat well, exercise regularly, work hard, spend time with my family and friends, and reserve time to be alone reading or playing music. My goal is to stay engaged, be present, and appreciate what each moment brings. Don't sweat the small stuff.
