Accepting new patients


Professional Profile

I joined the Center for Primary Care, Green Valley team in 2016 and work closely with the doctors to take care of patient’s health care needs. It is always our goal to provide patients with timely access to the best quality of care and I bring experience, compassion, and a commitment to providing the best possible care to all of my patients. I began my medical career in the U.S. Navy as a medic before going on to graduate from the Stanford University School of Medicine Primary Care Associate Program. As a physician assistant, I also completed a master’s degree and a rigorous year of clinical training, often right alongside the medical students. A physician assistant’s training may be shorter compared to traditional medical school but it is nonetheless very challenging.

I have received training in multiple specialties such as gastroenterology, hepatology (liver disease), spine medicine and HIV/AIDS but my true passion is primary care where I am able to build long-term relationships with patients and go through all of life’s milestones with them while providing high quality healthcare.

I embrace NorthBay Healthcare’s use of a team approach to caring for our patients. On a typical day, I will see 10-12 patients, ranging from pre-op and post-emergency department appointments to primary care and minor procedures, such as suturing wounds. I enjoy getting to know patients and following them through their medical conditions. Even the small victories, like getting someone to work on find a solution to their problem, are very rewarding.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children. I am active in my church and happily volunteer on medical mission trips to various parts of the world.
