Philosophy of Care
I was raised in San Diego and San Francisco and love the Bay Area so much that I went to college, medical school, residency, and fellowship at Stanford. During my three year allergy immunology fellowship and while on Stanford faculty, I helped start a food allergy research trial that has been life-changing for patients and their families.
My philosophy of care follows the golden rule: I want to provide the type of care that I would want for my loved ones and myself. I love practicing medicine and greatly value being able to provide outstanding care for my patients at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation.
