I strongly believe that medicine is more than technology, because people are more than machines! My goal is to care for the whole person, and I aim to foster a relationship with patients based on trust and mutual respect.
I have practiced medicine for over 20 years in diverse clinical settings and have held positions with large medical groups in the Bay Area. I have also contributed to research in therapeutic device development in the field of hypertension. I publish regularly in peer-reviewed journals and I serve as assistant clinical professor of medicine at UCSF. I wrote a book that critically examines the theory and practice of "population medicine."
I am board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in the areas of cardiology and interventional cardiology. I also hold a certification in bioethics with distinction from the National Catholic Bioethics Center.
