Philosophy of Care
I enjoy seeing my patients get well from illness. The best patient visits I have are when the patients return to tell me how much better they are feeling, how much weight they have lost, or how proud they are that they stopped smoking.
Families are the most important part of life and my goal is to take care of patients from the newborn period thru adulthood. I enjoy building long-term relationships with people and love seeing babies and children grow into adulthood. As a new dad, who is living through the newborn period with two screaming babies at home, I have come to appreciate more of what we all experience as parents.
Prevention is so important in keeping people healthy, and it is one of the most important public health services that we can do as physicians. I like to keep my patients up to date on all their health care preventative services (tetanus shots, Pap smears, colonoscopies, etc.) so we can continue to do our best to prevent disease before it happens.
Being part of the Palo Alto Medical Foundation helps me leverage technology resources as well as the resources of hundreds of other physicians in order to keep patients up to date on the latest medical trends and treatments. Using MyHealthOnline, I'm able to update patients on their lab results as well as communicate with them 24-hours-a-day.
I enjoy seeing patients for the full range of medical visits - from physical exams and sports physicals, to visits for conditions ranging from sore throats, high blood pressure and high cholesterol to skin rashes.
Additional Background Information
I attended medical school at the University of California, Los Angeles (now the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA), where I explored the various medical specialties. I chose to pursue a combined internal medicine-pediatrics residency in order to continue working with children and taking care of adult patients as well.
At Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, I spent four years training in adult medicine and pediatrics. My training was equally divided in the two disciplines, and I spent rotations at county hospitals, community clinics, children's hospitals and our community hospital. In Los Angeles, I was able to experience a tremendous cultural and educational diversity to complement my training.
I returned to the Bay Area in 2004. I worked for two years in a private practice in San Jose, working closely with O'Connor Hospital in San Jose.
Outside of our clinic, I help teach medical students from Stanford University School of Medicine in the office as part of their internal medicine rotations.
I look forward to meeting you and your family in the future
