I have been in practice in Orange County for 21 years, and over that time I have developed a philosophy of caring for patients that focuses on the ability of the body to heal itself. Preventive care must be emphasized and listening to the patient is vital to achieving the goal of optimal health. My desire to work with people and to provide care for them prompted my decision to become a physician. Being a family medicine specialist allows me to treat patients from childhood to maturity. I enjoy being the doctor for the whole family.
