My educational experience has taken me across the USA, from an undergraduate at the University of California, San Diego (Magna Cum Laude) to New York University School of Medicine, residency at Scripps Mercy San Diego and Endocrinology Fellowship at Stanford University. I am Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Board Certified in Endocrinology and Metabolism. I am very happy to return to my hometown of San Diego and to have the privilege of having my Endocrinology practice, Center for Hormonal Health and Well-Being, in Encinitas at 477 N. El Camino Real, Suite D200. Within the broad field of Endocrinology I am particularly interested in disorders of the thyroid, pituitary, adrenals, lipids, and osteoporosis as well as the hormonal transition through mid life for both men and women. Other areas of expertise include the management of obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and nutritional counseling.

I truly believe that this is the best and only way to practice medicine. ... read more.
