My goal as a radiologist is to facilitate diagnostic assessment and treatment decisions by synthesizing clinical history with imaging findings to provide accurate, timely, and thoughtful interpretations. I enjoy working closely with referring physicians to help guide imaging decisions to optimize evaluation of patients.
I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Biology and continued on to medical school at New York Medical College on a scholarship from the United States Navy, I graduated in 1999. I completed an internship in Internal Medicine at the Naval Medical Center in San Diego in 2000. My residency training was interrupted by an active duty tour as a flight surgeon providing primary care to a Marine Corps helicopter squadron stationed at Camp Pendleton, CA. I deployed with them to the Middle East for Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. After completing my obligation to the Navy, I returned to my Bay Area roots for radiology residency at Stanford University (but maintained my allegiance to the Golden Bears). I completed a musculoskeletal and body imaging fellowship also at Stanford.
My special interests in radiology include musculoskeletal imaging and body imaging.
