Where I practice
Hello, thank you for visiting my page. I'm glad to have the opportunity to share a little bit about myself, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I was born in Chicago (and will be a lifelong Bulls fan) but have also lived in Colorado, New Jersey, New York. I am now blessed to call Southern California home where I live with my beautiful wife, my kind-hearted son, and my funny little girl. I work with the American Academy of Sleep Medicine on initiatives involving technology to improve access to medical care, and we have received grant funding for research projects that evaluate new treatments and methods of giving our members more control over their care.
About my practice
I have a passion to help people get the best sleep they can get and a passion to find ways to improve the kind of care we can provide for our members. We have a wonderful team of doctors, nurses, case managers, technologists and receptionists that really care and try to be as accessible as possible. We have programs that are dedicated towards helping people with a comprehensive spectrum of sleep disorders including sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy, and other conditions that cause excessive sleepiness, and people with lung disease such as emphysema that may require assistance with breathing while asleep. We also take care of children, including newborns. Our sleep center is nationally recognized as being at the cutting edge of sleep medicine, and our staff is regularly invited to lecture nationally. But our passion will always be focused on each individual that comes into our center whom we have the privilege to serve and whose life in turn touches us.
How I thrive
Eating right and exercising are very important. But what I've found in my hyperactive life is that finding time to rest and placing an emphasis on sleep makes a huge difference in my overall wellness. I've discovered that finding time to "be still" is critical for my health, and those are the times that I can be fully present for my family, laugh with my children, read and refresh my mind, and play the guitar and sing bringing me a tremendous sense of joy and peace (and painful eardrums for all those around me!) Sleep well and thrive!
