    Philosophy of Care

    A native of Fremont, I was raised in the Niles district when the landscape was dominated by apricot orchards and farmland. My iterations in the Bay Area have included being a Niles Bulldog, a Hopkins Hawk, a Mission San Jose Warrior and a Cal Bear. My first vocational inclination was to be a major league baseball player, but an egregious lack of talent and Dennis Eckersley dispelled that great notion.

    Medical school at U.C. Irvine provided the only extended period away from the Bay Area, and I joined the Palo Alto Medical Clinic in January 1991. I enjoy the breadth of issues encountered in primary care. I try to remember that the etymology of "doctor" comes from the word "to teach." I enjoy engaging and educating patients on health care issues, evidence-based medicine and the art of medicine.

    My nonmedical interests are diverse. I am a rider of road bike and horse. I enjoy opera, swimming, reading history and painting military miniatures.
