Hello, and welcome to my Web page! Please feel free to look around and learn more about me. I look forward to meeting you in person.
I was born and raised in sunny Southern California, but decided after college at UCLA to try something different and went to New York City for medical school. Living there reminded me how wonderful it is to live in Southern California. I chose to be a doctor so that I could combine my love for science with my desire to apply what I learned to help people. I chose to specialize in family medicine because I enjoy the variety of my practice and strive to establish long-term relationships with members. I became an expert in sports medicine because I love sports and working with athletes. I am currently a team physician for UC Irvine.
I look at life as a journey. I am very interested in trying to prevent diseases or to catch them early. If you and I partner together to care for your health, I will offer you preventive care such as Pap tests, mammograms, colon cancer screenings, and osteoporosis screenings. My practice is currently half family medicine and half sports medicine.
Besides sports, my great passion in life is to travel. My goal is to visit the best beaches in the world and when I retire, to become like Homer, author of lliad and the Odyssey, and sail the Greek Isles. Until then, I look forward to providing the highest quality medical care to you.
