WHY I CHOSE PAIN MANAGEMENT

I chose to specialize in interventional pain management to build upon my experience in treating pain and sports medicine conditions as an acupuncture physician and increase my capacity to care for my community and patients.

PERSONAL INTERESTS AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

I enjoy almost anything outdoors and with my family to balance my time in the clinic including surfing, hiking, biking, and beach cleanups.
