Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Not accepting new patients. Please call 1-888-956-1616.
Welcome to my Web page! My name is Dr. Fred Veretto, and I'm a specialist in internal medicine, based at the Kaiser Permanente San Marcos Medical Offices.
I'm originally from Oakland, but have lived in Berkeley, Los Angeles, Altadena, Dunkirk, Maryland (a suburb of Washington, DC), and now Oceanside. (I wasn't chased out of all these places, it's just where life's circumstances led my wife and me).
My practice concentrates on what interventions and techniques have been statistically demonstrated to be of benefit, either for screening a population or for a particular patient's complaints. Frankly, I'm not into alternative medicine, since what makes it "alternative" is that these approaches have yet to be proven to the satisfaction of the medical community at large.
I'm interested in astronomy, and I like to work in my garden (what I call my "farm," which consists of about 8 tomato plants that AREN'T thriving, and some pepper plants that even I can't seem to ruin). I play the piano to relieve stress, and I highly recommend making music for that purpose (the evidence isn't strong, it's just fun). For exercise, I run, ski, and just try to keep up with my wife, who's a pretty avid athlete.
