Where I practice
Hello! Thank you for taking some time to learn more about myself and my practice.
I grew up in Oakdale, California, a small city in Northern California known as the Cowboy Capital of the World for its population of cowboys and its annual rodeo. My first exposure to the medical field was through my father and uncle, who are both surgeons. Growing up, I became interested in medicine because it gave me the opportunity to apply my interest in human physiology and to work with a lot of fascinating people. I went to college at UC Davis and went to medical school at the Keck School of Medicine at USC. I returned to UC Davis for my internal medicine residency and endocrinology fellowship. It was during residency that I met my wife and together we decided to move back to Southern California.
About my practice
My specialty is endocrinology, a field that focuses on a variety of conditions related to hormones, including diabetes, osteoporosis, and conditions affecting the thyroid, parathyroid glands, pituitary gland, adrenal glands, and reproductive organs. I believe achieving or maintaining good health is a collaborative effort and strive to help you better understand the conditions you have and to involve you in the decision-making process for your own care.
How I thrive
Despite growing up in Oakdale, I did not gain any cowboy skills. However, I did grow up a fan of the San Francisco Giants, San Francisco 49ers, and Sacramento Kings (which I hope Los Angeles sports fans do not hold against me) and enjoy watching them play. I also enjoy watching movies, traveling, and spending time with family. To stay in shape, I run on a regular basis.
