Biography

Welcome to my medical practice. I continue to accept new clients. I am available for all of your primary healthcare needs.

I have been the fortunate recipient of scholarships that have allowed me to be trained at some of America’s most prestigious institutions. I received my undergraduate degree at Pomona College and my medical degree from Stanford University. I completed my internship and residency specializing in family medicine at the Stanford-affiliated San Jose Hospital. I am Board Certified by the American Academy of Family Physicians. I was conveyed the honor of being selected to be a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians for my service to the Academy promoting and teaching the tenets of Family Practice and San Jose Magazine selected me for their “Top Doc” award.

During my 30+ years of experience in private practice, I have served as the primary care physician for some of the most influential people in the Silicon Valley. Whether you see me in consultation for my services as a civil surgeon, or wish to consult me as a Primary Care Physician, I look forward to giving you the same high level of care.

I avidly seek the opportunity to convey my passion for teaching preventive healthcare. For several years, I have hosted international medical graduates who wish to increase their understanding of the US healthcare system. I give lectures at health fairs, employee enrichment seminars, charitable events, and professional associations throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. My most popular seminar is on the subject of insomnia and the health hazards of too little sleep. My book, Sleep Matters is available at www.sleepmattersthebook.com.

I have tried to combine my extraordinary education and training at America’s top medical programs with my eclectic interest in history, cultures and alternative medicine so that I can practice a form of integrative medicine where the focus becomes what are often called “root causes”. In addition to the use of traditional FDA-tested medications, I often recommend techniques such as guided imagery, self hypnosis, yogic exercise, and skills training to cope with life’s health challenges.

Allow me to help you with your primary healthcare needs. Welcome.
