I want to help you do a great job taking care of yourself.
I want to help you do a great job taking care of yourself. I chose a career in medicine because I like working with people and I believe in the body's ability to be healthy. My medical training (University of California at San Francisco School of Medicine and Family Practice Residency at Santa Rosa) was inspirational for its devotion to the sharing of human experience but disappointing for its miniscule glimpse into the makings of health. After graduation, my studies of nutrition, homeopathy and the existing medical research into lifestyle questions has enabled me to fashion an integrative medical partnership with my patients. 1979 MD, UCSF 1982 Family Practice Residency, Chief Resident 1982-1984, 1992-ongoing Private Practice 1986-1989 Medical Director, La Clinica Del Valle and Emergency Medicine Physician
