My father was a physician at Grossmont Hospital starting in 1960, so medicine and Grossmont are both in my blood. I knew that becoming a physician would give me the academic and professional fulfillment I needed while being able to live in the same environment in which I grew up.

I provide general orthopedic care through the office and the Emergency Room at Sharp Grossmont Hospital. I provide subspecialized care to the greater San Diego area in the areas of shoulder, knee and anterior hip replacement surgery, all with fellowship-trained surgeons.

Having just sent my third and youngest child off to college, I am just finding out what spare time is. I love ocean fishing and anything else fun I can do with my kids and my friends.
