Typical conditions and medical problems he sees in his practice include hypertension, coronary artery disease, diabetes mellitus, arthritis, sports injuries, depression, allergy, sinus conditions, asthma, and more.

Before embarking on his professional journey, he graduated with his medical degree from the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine, and completed his internship at Brown University – Miriam Hospital.

He helped build that practice to a membership of 35,000 served by a Permanente medical group of over 30 primary care and specialty care physicians.
