Besides being a proud member of the Sutter Health care team in the Bay Area, I am a member of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary, Department of Homeland Security. In this capacity, I serve the community and the public in education about water activities, eg paddle boarding, and boating safety in San Francisco Bay waters.
I make frequent trips to the gym to exercise. I believe that a healthy body supports a healthy mind and spirit. I love outdoor activities such as: running, biking, hiking, camping, snow skiing, and all things related to the water - whether it is lakes, estuaries, the Bay or the ocean.
Philosophy of Care
I believe in the Golden Rule: treat others as I would want to be treated. Coupled with active listening to patients. If faced with a diagnostic dilemma (unless it's life or limb-threatening), I ask the patient what he or she thinks may be causing the problem. I believe in talking to and collaborating with my professional colleagues at work when faced with challenging cases. Two brains are better than one; strength in numbers.
