Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I am an experienced board-certified emergency physician and I am committed to providing the highest level of care to our members here in Orange County.
I grew up here in Southern California, attended medical school at UC Irvine, and completed my residency training at UC Davis Medical Center.
It is an honor and privilege to provide care to our members. I believe in the Hippocratic oath that we must first do no harm as physicians. I try to stay up-to-date on the current emergency medicine literature and to provide evidence-based care. Sometimes that means less invasive testing or less use of medications that have proven ineffective. I try to explain the risks, benefits, and alternatives of testing and treatments that we have available and believe in shared decision-making together with members and families. The Emergency Department is a chaotic environment, and our goal is to provide calm reassurance and structure while we run appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic interventions to stabilize life- or limb-threatening conditions.
I try to eat well, exercise, and spend quality time with my family and friends and encourage the members I interact with to do so as well.
