Welcome to my Web page. I'm glad to have the opportunity to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel it's very important that you are comfortable with the physician who will be taking care of your child, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I have lived in Southern California for most of my life. I went away to go to medical school in Northern California, but realized I greatly missed this area and have practiced medicine down here since I graduated from school. When deciding what type of specialty to go into, I realized I enjoyed working with children. From my own personal experience with my pediatrician while growing up, I knew it would be a fulfilling job and one where I could help make a difference in children's lives.
Thankfully, the field of pediatrics allows me to deal mostly with healthy children and the main philosophy of my practice is to help them stay that way. I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to keep a child healthy, but I'm also here to help your child if he or she is sick. I try to work with both parents and children in maintaining a child's health, and it helps me to better care for your kids when everyone is actively involved.
A balanced lifestyle is very important to me. My family and friends are my top priorities, and I always try to make time for them. Whether I'm spending time with them at an outing or get-together or having a quiet and relaxing day at home, they always help reenergize me.
