Internal Medicine is a recognized specialty of Medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the different internal organ systems of your body and how these problems interact with all other organs.

My formal education was obtained at Creighton University in Omaha Nebraska. After intensive residency training at Letterman Army Medical Center in San Francisco, I received my board certification and moved to Napa. I enjoy active medical staff privileges at Queen of the Valley, and served as the Chief of Staff in 1996. As a member of the Napa County Medical Society, California Medical Association, American College of Physician Executives and past president of Physicians Health Partnership, I remain active in my profession. I also serve as Medical Director for Napa Nursing Center and Piners Nursing Home.
A healthy doctor-patient relationship is best created when based on mutual understanding. In a world of expanding technology and information, we make special efforts to explain everything to you regarding your medical condition, your medical treatment and the medication chosen to best help you. We encourage questions if something is unclear.
Your health and well being is our focus. My staff and I are determined to provide you with every benefit available, in a pleasant, efficient and friendly atmosphere.
We thank you in advance for the opportunity to provide your medical care.
