About me

Thank you for allowing me this opportunity to introduce myself.

Biography

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.
