My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal as your personal doctor is to partner with you to create a comfortable medical home that encourages you to seek and follow medical advice that can improve your personal lifestyle and help prevent or treat serious conditions before permanent harm occurs. I will work with you at each step to help you make informed decisions toward achieving your goals – whether it's to optimally treat known conditions, uncover hidden risks or just have a mutually respectful conversation to answer your questions and concerns. 

As one of the few family medicine doctors in south Orange County offering this personalized healthcare approach, I provide a level of care that can help you receive the prompt attention your health deserves. 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 all of South Orange County. I mainly focus on adult medicine now but have extensive experience in adolescent care and preventive care in addition to all aspects of primary care. I am affiliated with Mission Hospital.
