Where I practice
Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I am a native Californian, and I grew up in Walnut, CA. I am the middle child of 5, and we are all in the healthcare industry. My wife, kids, and 2 dogs (Jasey and Paxton) are the joys of my life. Together, we enjoy traveling the world and experiencing new things. My motto is: We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.
Born and raised with deep roots in Southern California, I started my journey attending college at UC Riverside. Prior to my medical training, I earned a master’s degree in bioethics at Albany Medical Center. I then went on to study medicine in the hot heat of Arizona at Midwestern University, and followed by my emergency medicine training in the extreme cold of Michigan at Garden City Hospital. My passion for emergency medicine stems from my previous training as an emergency medical technician. I enjoy practicing medicine that encompasses a wide spectrum of disease and delivering emergency care in stressful situations that are life threatening.
About my practice
The Emergency Department is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week all year round to assist you and your loved ones in times of critical need. No matter what time of day, our doctors are ready to compassionately listen to your life threatening dilemma and deliver the utmost highest level of care.
How I thrive
When my white coat is off and the doctor hat is removed, I can be found at the local beach surfing, at the neighborhood supermarket collecting groceries to prepare a fine dining experience for my family, at the new restaurant that everyone is Yelping about, at the mountains cycling and/or snowboarding, at the gym pumping some iron, at the national park taking photos of wildlife and nature--pretty much living the American Dream that California has to offer!
