Biography

I was moved to become a physician after seeing a mission doctor devoted to providing quality care in a small clinic in South America. I enjoy the process of planning, implementing and providing the best possible care for my patients. I believe it is paramount that I spend enough time discussing concerns so the patient gains a clear understanding of the process and how it would affect them. They then can actively and intelligently participate. The goal is an excellent outcome and a happy, healthy patient.

When I am not working, I enjoy gardening, kayaking, trail riding on horseback, mountain climbing and rooting for the Padres.
