Practicing medicine is an artform, involving a partnership between myself, the primary care physician, and you, my patient. This partnership is one of mutual respect and trust that is formed over time, as I care for you through the many ups and downs of life. My MDVIP-affiliated practice will give me more time to form close relationships with patients and enable me to offer MDVIP Wellness Program Plus, which incorporates a multitude of physical screening tools, an advanced cognitive screening assessment and a personal medication management program to help preserve health and vitality as we age. In my personalized care practice, similar to concierge medicine, I prefer to approach each patient without formularies or protocols based on the masses, as each patient is unique.
I have worked in Thousand Oaks since 1998, with admitting privileges at Los Robles Hospital. My practice serves patients from Ventura, Camarillo, Newbury Park, Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Oak Park, Agoura, Simi Valley Westlake and the surrounding areas. As a board-certified, family practice physician, I care for patients of all ages across the entire lifespan, from birth to death. I appreciate my specialty as it has allowed me to care for entire families across multiple generations. I have a strong interest in thyroid diagnosis and management, as well as wound repair. I also enjoy teaching and have been a mentor and preceptor to medical students, physician assistants and nurse practitioners. I speak and understand some medical Spanish, but a translator is recommended and available at my office.
It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.
