ABOUT ME: Retired from seeing patients.  

I founded La Mesa Pediatrics in 1977. I have previously been on the teaching staff of San Diego Regional Medical Center, and am currently a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at UCSD. I am active with the East County Boys and Girls Club, and in my spare time enjoy driving fast-moving vehicles- I have a Camaro, a speed boat, and a motorcycle. I am also the mastermind behind our beautiful aquarium!
