Cure sometimes, treat often, comfort always.

I believe that:

  • A patient should understand the goals of their treatment and feel they are partners in their care
  • Treatment should not be worse than the disease
  • We must provide the best available therapies today but continually strive to discover even better treatments for tomorrow

My family and I have lived in Minneapolis since completing my medical training in my native California. My lovely wife and I are blessed with two sons and two daughters who keep us plenty busy. I enjoy spending family time at our cabin, learning spoken Chinese, and keeping up with technology. For the record – I do not play golf.

Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not; a sense of humor to console him for what he is. – Francis Bacon
