About me

I am glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It’s very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.

Biography

I completed all of my postgraduate training (internal medicine and rheumatology) at the University of Arizona, but I decided to settle in California to practice.

About my practice

I am a board-certified rheumatologist and manage a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, polymyalgia rheumatica, osteoarthritis, and gout, to name a few. Most of these diseases are chronic, so I feel that it is very important for us to work together as a team to best manage them.

How I thrive

Maintaining a balance between work and home ensures that I am able to do my best for my patients. Spending time with my family and friends and playing golf help me stay well.
