    Philosophy of Care

    I was born and raised in California, and attended college and medical school on the East Coast. I love Northern California and never want to leave it -- I'm here to stay. In addition to medicine, I have a background in architecture. I was drawn to orthopedics because I love people. I am family oriented and view the patient/physician relationship as a partnership.
