Resident Physician

  • Program Year: 1
  • Medical School:  Dow Medical College
  • Reason for choosing Family Medicine:  I have always found Family Medicine to be intellectually challenging as it deals with a wide variety of patients of all ages and requires a deep knowledge covering all complex multi-system disease processes.  In addition, continuity of care provides Family Medicine physicians with an opportunity to bond with patients and treat them as a whole person addressing their psychosocial issues, and educating them about community based diseases.  It is this comprehensive approach that attracted me to Family Medicine.    
  • Reason for choosing Kaweah Delta:  I chose Kaweah Delta because the faculty is highly experienced and committed to resident education - the program's affiliation with UC Irvine is an added bonus.  I am also passionate about working in an area with an underserved community.  With the diverse patient population of the Central Valley and Kaweah Delta's commitment to serving the local community, this was by far the most attractive residency program for me. 
  • Hobbies/Interests:  Dining out.  Traveling and exploring new places.  Spending time with family.  Outdoor activities.
