Where I practice
Welcome! I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my dermatology practice. I feel fortunate to be able to contribute to the health of my patients, and I look forward to working with you if you need my care.
I am a native Southern Californian who was born and grew up as a Kaiser Permanente member in Los Angeles. I became a physician because I wanted to make a positive change in people’s lives by treating and helping them understand their diseases. After obtaining my bachelor’s degree from Revelle College at UC San Diego, I went to medical school in the Bronx, New York, then moved right back to California. I have settled in our wonderful county of San Diego and enjoy spending time with my wife and children.
About my practice
I like to take care of all aspects of dermatology! I enjoy seeing patients of all ages, from the little ones to the great big ones, and enjoy the stories and history of every person that I see. Also, I’m pleased to work with a team of such intelligent, skilled, and dedicated physicians. We work well together and strive to be respectful and attentive to each of our patients.
How I thrive
I keep my life balanced by spending time with my wife and kids. When I have free time, I like to run, play guitar, and occasionally go surfing. Often, I dream about getting back out on the water on a sailboat. Bring me your best stories about how you stay balanced when I see you next!
