Ross University Medical School
Why did you choose FM?
I enjoy establishing long lasting relationships with patients and their
families. I like many aspects of FM, including the ability to practice
everything I have learned in pediatrics, OB, psychiatry and medicine.
I believe in preventative medicine, and FM is one of the only fields where
I can put my beliefs into practice.
Why Kaweah Delta?
Because of the people! I enjoy working in the area because all of the physicians,
nurses and support staff enjoy being here and like their jobs. This really
makes a difference in my ability to enjoy my job, and provide better patient
care. KD is also a new program, where my opinions on how rotations are
going and possible improvements are taken seriously, and changes are made
quickly. KD is also in a community that loves and needs new FM providers.
The location is perfect, with easy commute to LA and SF. No traffic!!!
Favorite places to eat around town
Vintage Press, Jack and Charlie’s, and Southern Pacific Depot,
Continued learning and practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine; exercise,
yoga, qigong, meditation; getting together with fellow residents.
Tell us something interesting about yourself
I really enjoy alternative medicine, and its applications to every patient.
I believe there are always multiple solutions to every health issue, and
I like being able to offer these solutions to each patient, and let them
decide how to best improve their health. I believe food is medicine you
take three times a day.
