I volunteer at a free clinic twice a month. I am also a volunteer in the Habitat Restoration Program at Point Reyes National Seashore.
I enjoy outdoor activities, especially hiking, backpacking and camping. I also like running and going to the gym. I love chess, and I love to travel.
Philosophy of Care
I strive to address and treat patients' acute episodic illnesses and injuries as expertly
as I can. In the Urgent Care setting I know that most conditions will encounter are
self limiting, and that most patients will respond well to compassionate reassurance,
patience, nature and time. There is a role for prescription therapeutics of course,
but I believe that educating patients is one of the most important services I can
provide. My greater than 25 years experience in Emergency Medicine has trained me
to recognize the serious and sometimes subtle, presentations of true medical and surgical
emergencies. I will use this training to help my patients get the most appropriate
and timely care they need.
The medical care system is complex and multifaceted, and at times very confusing to patients. I know that when I can explain the process and sequences of care that a patient will likely encounter, whatever their disposition is from the urgent care setting, it is generally well received and appreciated.
