Welcome to my office website. I hope this site will give you easy access to information about my medical practice and useful medical information to help you stay healthy.
I have been a physician in the mid-peninsula since 1989 and in my current solo practice since 1996 specializing in Internal Medicine, Hematology, and Medical Acupuncture. Click on the tabs above for more information about these areas of medicine.
I want my office to be a comfortable place where you know your medical care is tailored to you. We know that whether you are sick and need a diagnosis and treatment or well and striving to stay healthy, you are a unique individual. We hope to know what's happening in your life as well as in your body.
The doctor-patient relationship is a team whose purpose is to maximize the patient's health and well-being. If you are well and trying to stay well I will work to help you integrate beneficial habits to maintain your health. If you are acutely ill I want to determine what's wrong and together devise a plan to manage symptoms and restore your health. If you have chronic health issues I want to work with you to create a treatment plan which optimizes your health and respects your personal goals and lifestyle.
I do not participate in any insurance plans. I work for my patients, not for private or government insurance plans, and there is no room in my exam room for "middlemen". Independence from insurance plans enables me to personalize your health care by scheduling appointments which are long enough to meet your needs, provide same day appointments for urgent medical problems, and leave time in my daily schedule for phone calls and research about your health concerns.
I look forward to seeing you.
