Additional Information

I am a primary care physician Board Certified in Family Medicine since 2008. I have worked in community outpatient centers as well as served a medical director in an urgent care facility. Since 2017, I have served as an attending physician for California Correctional Healthcare Services who provide medical care to inmates housed within the California Department of Corrections. Along with taking care of typical primary care issues, I also manage patients needing care for complicated diabetes, congestive heart failure, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hepatitis C with liver cirrhosis, different cancers, end of life care, substance abuse disorders, acute prison related trauma and a myriad of other health related issues. As a Medication Assistance Treatment (MAT) provider, I obtained my X waiver through the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) certified to manage opioid dependent patients within a multidisciplinary program including prescribing Suboxone. As part of my duties within our facility, I also serve as a Clinical Associate Professor in Family Medicine overseeing, teaching and guiding medical students. This opportunity in providing tutelage to future physicians is an extrapolation of my previous passion in lecturing as a high school science teacher before going to medical school. I have served as an expert witness since 2021, providing objective, evidence base opinions on breach of duty, causation and damages. I am willing to opine on both plaintiff and defendant medical malpractice cases, give deposition statement when asked and testify in court if needed.
