I am a board certified family medicine physician with over 20 years of experience. I served as medical director and sole full-time physician for Catalina Island for almost four years, followed by being a hospitalist and teaching physician for Ventura County Medical Center. I started the family medicine hospitalist program for the University of California at Irvine hospital, taught in the medical school at UCI and helped redesign the medical school curriculum for USC Keck School of Medicine. I started my current outpatient practice over 15 years ago and utilizing evidence-based medicine, I treat a wide variety of illnesses and conditions. I have been invited to speak at regional and national conferences, elected to the board of directors for my medical group, and served as a subject matter expert for a medical device manufacturing company. I have extensive experience with primary care including preventative care, diabetes, hypertension, chronic disease management, asthma, COPD, transgender care, and women's health. I am a hard working individual with excellent communication skills, both verbal and written.
