Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
As a solo provider in a private practice, I am able to provide a very personal experience to every patient I take care of. That is a rare quality in today's medical environment.
Hernia Surgery: I am proud of my track record of all the operations I did. I particularly specialize in hernia surgery. Many patients come to my practice after trying out multiple surgeons and developing hernia recurrences.
Breast: I am proud to team up with private providers from different medical discipline to provide exceptional care for the patients with breast cancer. Together, we provide comprehensive care that include pathology, medical oncology and radiation oncology.
Skin cancer: Unfortunately, it is a common problem in the valley. I offer a full range of care from resecting the cancer, performing a sentinel lymph node biopsy, to reconstructing the anatomical area and re-establishing good cosmetic outcome.
Pilonidal disease: I am proud to be the only provider in the valley to offer "cleft lift".
I firmly believe that the best operation is one that establishes the goal of the operation with the least amount of surgery. Thus, I am always pushing the limits of minimally invasive surgery. I am proud that my patients are able to go back to work and usual function very soon.
I do all the usual common surgical operations in a minimally invasive fashion (laparoscopically, or even percutaneously). Specifically:
Laparoscopic Ventral hernia repair
Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair
Cleft lift ( cures pilonidal disease)
Sentinel lymph node biopsy
Skin cancer (resection and reconstruction)
Peritoneal dialysis access
Postsurgical pain treatment
Laparoscopic lysis of adhesions
No malpractice history found for California.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor’s board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
Healthgrades reports non-disciplinary board action history from for the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect non-disciplinary board actions?
Healthgrades collects non-disciplinary board actions from all 50 U.S. states.
