Philosophy of Care
I have been a community pediatrician for 22 years, a parent for 20 of those years. I believe that a good pediatrician must listen to the patient as well as the parent. It is his job to guide a family, helping them make the best possible choices, rather than to direct them to a single definitive course. Being involved in the community in which he practices is also vital, to better understand the challenges that his patients will be facing as well as the opportunities that are available to them. I have been living in Pleasanton for 22 years, actively involved in many organizations from Ballistic Soccer to the Valley Dance Theatre. Through my children and my own involvement I have come to love this community as a family. I look forward to meeting you and your children and am excited to watch and help them grow from babies, to children, to adults.
