I enjoy nephrology because it is a well-rounded specialty that requires a good foundation in general internal medicine. I also have an interest in artificial organs. In my practice, I approach each patient as an individual with unique needs. I try to empower my patients and treat them as I would members of my own family. The most important component of good health is education about the medical hazards of life. I believe in the strong commitment of UC Davis to both patient and physician education and to quality patient care.
