Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. This is an opportunity for me to briefly introduce myself and describe my practice. I sincerely hope this page provides you with the information you need if you are looking for a new physician.
I was born in Seattle and moved to Los Angeles with my family when I was in elementary school. I originally decided to become a physician because it was a way in which I could help the poor and underserved. I also had an affinity for math and science. Since I consider myself a "people person," this was a perfect way to integrate many of my goals and talents. I'm married and have three children who are absolutely the light of my life. I enjoy many hobbies, including skiing, basketball, reading, chess, and swimming.
About my practice
My practice philosophy involves to a significant degree my aforementioned goals and motivations for becoming a physician. I like to establish open communication with my patients, as it facilitates better understanding and helps in diagnosis and treatment.
How I thrive
My hobbies are part of what allow me to stay fit and well. I also do regular high- and low-impact aerobic exercise, including tennis and basketball with my now-adult children (when they’re around), who are all in various graduate schools across the country. My family and I attend First AME Church for part of our spiritual health and growth.
