Greetings! I am glad to have a chance to tell you about my practice and myself.
Although I have lived in Southern California for most of my life, I have attended schools on both the East and West Coasts, as well as in the Midwest. Many of my siblings (and my wife) are also health care providers. My children have also shown a great interest in pursuing health care careers.
I am trained in, and currently practice, both anesthesiology and pain management. I believe that you should be involved in every aspect of your health care as a member of the team. Our goal is not only to concentrate our efforts on your immediate evaluation and treatment plan but also to develop long-term plans that include encouraging you and giving you the information you need to take preventive measures. It is my belief that this multiple approach provides you with the best possible care.
Health is a way of life that affects the spirit, mind, and body. For me, developing a strong spiritual faith is important to keeping my spirit healthy. To keep my mind healthy, I engage in activities that challenge me to think and exercise my mind. Finally, for the body, in addition to the importance of exercise and diet, it's essential to take preventative measures such as having scheduled diagnostic health tests and regular checkups.
