Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page! I look forward to becoming your partner in health. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice.
I am a native Southern Californian who attended local public schools, eventually attending UCLA as an undergraduate and USC for medical school. When I was in middle school, I was fortunate enough to meet an uncle who was a medical doctor in Hawaii. He specialized in the treatment of leprosy throughout the Pacific Islands. His pictures and stories stimulated my curiosity about the field of medicine. His work showed me how a career in medicine would give me the opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives.
About my practice
My medical practice gives me the opportunity to help people in a very important way. I work with a great team, each of whom is essential to the success of maintaining the health of our patients. My work on the team relates to the field of medical imaging: computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound. I help your physician find the underlying reasons of your health issues so that the appropriate therapy and treatments can be given.
How I thrive
My family life is my highest priority. I coached all three of my sons’ basketball teams, was active in the Indian Guide Program, and have supported my kids all through their high school athletics. They have now all finished college and have joined the great American workforce and are becoming new taxpayers. My wife and I enjoy our new quiet time together. We enjoy the theater, music, and traveling more than ever. We are longtime fans of UCLA basketball and have attended many games. We still enjoy family time, especially when Dad picks up the check! We lost our family Labrador Retriever a few years ago, but we’ve now found a new rescue dog from Tucson, Arizona. He’s our special “grand-dog”!
