My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal as your personal doctor is to partner with you to provide individualized care. My role as your physician is to serve as your quarterback to navigate the healthcare system and advocate for you. I focus on preventive care as the best way to avoid illness, as many medical conditions can be prevented. I will work with you at each step to help you make informed decisions toward achieving your goals – whether it's biking to work, surfing San Onofre or watching the sun set. In addition to being a primary care physician, I am also a board-certified Addiction Specialist and see patients for various addictive problems and provide consultations to referred patients for gambling, alcohol, substance and cigarette dependency.  

As one of the few family medicine doctors in Orange County offering this personalized healthcare approach, I provide a level of care that can help you achieve your healthcare goals. I also offer conveniences, like same- or next-day appointments that start on time, which may be found in concierge medicine practices. 

My practice is located in Dana Point, California, and serves patients from Laguna Beach, Laguna Niguel, Mission Viejo, San Juan Capistrano and San Clemente. We focus on physical, mental and preventive care in addition to traditional aspects of primary care. I am affiliated with Mission Hospital in Laguna Beach.

Larry has been so good to us, my wife and I. In her recent medical illness, the many times she called him by phone off hours to get support and counsel, at a time she most needed it. Neither she nor I had any idea as to what was going on and he helped to consistently guide us the right way. And again a few months back, when my wife was traveling and I had just returned from also being on… See more
