Why did you select Kaweah Delta's residency program?  Patient population, location and faculty.  I wanted to be able to provide for the medically underserved while being close to family.  It was an additional bonus that Kaweah Delta is a 3-year program in an area with a low cost of living.  On the interview trail, I was won over by the enthusiasm and passion of the faculty - they shared similar beliefs on our roles as physicians and understood the things that I felt to be the most important in life.

Why did you choose your specialty?  Every day brings something new and exciting.  I enjoy seeing a variety of patients, diagnosing the undifferentiated patient, and being able to handle almost any situation.

What are your hobbies?  Hanging out with friends, exploring new restaurants, geocaching
