Hello! Welcome to my Web page. I'm glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It's very important to me that you feel comfortable with your physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I am originally from Chicago, and had all of my undergraduate and medical training in the Midwest. However, I fell in love with the warm weather in San Diego so I decided to move here and make it my home. I try to take advantage of the climate here and enjoy the outdoors all year round: I enjoy hiking, swimming and running on the beach.
It is an exciting time to be practicing rheumatology as there have been many medical advances in this field over the past few years. Nowadays, as a result of medical research and improvements in understanding the diseases, there are much better treatment options for the autoimmune connective tissue diseases that we treat.
I think it is important to try the best we can to be active and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I personally have noticed the benefits of swimming and yoga in improving spine and joint stiffness, in addition to improving sleep and boosting my energy levels.
