Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
Medicine has taken me around the world and I have been lucky enough to have had such a large breadth of experiences that allow me to connect with every patient, regardless of background. I did my undergraduate education in my home state of California, then went to the Caribbean and England for medical school. After that, I did my internal medicine residency in Phoenix, AZ. That wasn't enough for me, so I did nephrology fellowship in Tampa, FL. It was there I got experience working as a hospitalist and also started my nephrology practice there. I am now back in my hometown of Orange County, CA and I hope to significantly contribute to the improvement of kidney health in the area. When I have a bit of downtime, my hobbies include training in Muay Thai (Thai kickboxing) for the past 7 years, archery, piano, building things out of used pallet wood, working on my old motorcycle, cooking and grilling, and hanging out with my girlfriend Amanda, her cats Artemis and Kona, and my dog Reno.
