First, I would like to tell you about my training. I graduated college cum laude from Brandeis University. Then I attended medical school at The Chicago Medical School. I completed my Family Practice internship and residency at Southside Hospital, an affiliation of Stony Brook University in New York, where I served as Chief Resident. I then brought my new wife, Diane, the future Mayor of Redwood City, to the Peninsula where we established our practice in San Carlos. We spent the next 25 years in that solo practice caring for members of the community of all ages. I am now a member of the Dignity Health Medical Group affiliated with Sequoia Hospital. I have always focused on the patient as an individual, and not an illness. I strongly believe that medicine is not about computers and textbooks, but about understanding the individuals' medical and psychological needs. We strive to guide them through the medical system to provide them with the highest quality and most appropriate care possible. I try to provide the patient with as much information as possible, and involve them in the decision making process. I enjoy treating entire families, as the family dynamics often provide insight into the medical problem of one of the family's members. I am always honored when an individual entrusts me with their medical care. To learn more about our office, you can go to our website at sequoiamedicalgroup.org.
