Hello and welcome to my page. This is a chance for me to share a little information about myself.
I’m originally from Los Angeles, but grew up mostly in Colorado. I came back to California for medical school and never left. I enjoy being a doctor because it combines helping people with my love for science. I’m married and have a son. Family life keeps me busy outside the office, but I do get to enjoy my hobbies from time to time. I especially enjoy cooking, sports, reading, and long hot baths.
I strongly believe that I’m your partner in managing your health. Staying informed on how to prevent disease and how to take care of any illness you have is key to that process. As your personal physician, I take care of the whole you—your physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
I know how hard it is to find the time to take care of yourself with your busy work and life schedules. However, it’s imperative that you take the time. For me, staying well means healthy eating and exercising regularly. My family and friends give me emotional support, and my church helps me stay spiritually grounded. I also try to take a little time for myself each week to do something I really like to do—sometimes it’s just 30 minutes, but it really makes a difference.
