I am a board-certified Family Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine physician with postdoctoral Palliative Medicine Fellowship training from the Interdisciplinary Stanford/VA Palo Alto program and mini-fellowship, Ethno-Geriatrics from the Stanford Geriatric Education Center.

After working as Medical Director for a local bay area hospice, I served for over a decade at a prominent Bay Area medical group as Medical Director of Palliative Care Services and Associate Hospice Medical Director. I then expanded my practice to include adult primary care. I relish the tenderness of the physician-patient relationship. It is no surprise that my favorite part of practicing medicine is meaningful collaborative encounters with those I serve.

Having the privilege of caring for patients of various life stages has taught me many valuable lessons. I am convinced that it is never too late to enhance a person’s quality of life. We foster a supportive partnership with our members in goal setting. With that enthusiasm, Lifestyle, Health, and Wellness consultations for adults are part of our services.
