Where I practice
Hello, and welcome to my Web page! I'm excited about the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. I feel it is extremely important that you feel comfortable with all of your physicians, and I hope this page will provide a way to begin to get to know me.
I am from Riverside County, Hemet to be exact. I was drawn to podiatry by a very close family friend, who provided guidance throughout my early career. I come from a family of six—two brothers and one sister—and most of them are still in the Riverside area. I enjoy almost any outdoor activity, but I would say that deep sea fishing is my favorite. I played baseball, basketball and men's volleyball in high school. I went to Cal State San Marcos for my undergraduate studies, and then attended the California School of Podiatric Medicine in Oakland. After that I had a three-year surgical residency in the Bay Area. I am excited to back around family, friends and the southern California sun!!
About my practice
My focus in podiatry is forefoot surgery, rearfoot surgery and wound care.
How I thrive
To relax and recharge, I enjoy the great outdoors. We are truly blessed with natural beauty in Southern California. There are not too many places in the world where you can go surfing in the morning and skiing/hiking in the afternoon. While at work I try to always use the stairs and I also go to the gym four to five times a week.
