Where I practice
Thank you for allowing me this opportunity to introduce myself.
I’m originally from New Zealand, but I’ve lived in the Southern California area for more than forty years. I’m a family man with a wonderful wife and three busy children. We all enjoy outdoor activities and sports, and take advantage of the sunshine and beaches whenever possible. I come from a family of doctors. My father is an Ob/Gyn and infertility specialist, my older brother is a neurologist, and my younger sister is a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist.
About my practice
I am a board-certified general pediatrician, and a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. It’s my privilege to see and care for all children and adolescents—from birth to eighteen years of age. I care for babies, preemies, infants, children, and adolescents. I place a keen emphasis on nutrition and diet, and promote sports and outdoor activities. I also promote good school and educational performance, character enhancement, and preventive care to ensure the future health and well-being of children. Staying well is the name of the game!
How I thrive
For my own wellness, I like to keep to an active routine, and I strive for a balance of mind, body, and spirit. I enjoy all sports and exercise except for sit-ups, and support local school and neighborhood programs. It’s great to see everyone working to stay active and healthy.
