I am a SFMS member because SFMS offers a lot of networking opportunities to the local medical community. As a solo practitioner not affiliated with larger organization, SFMS allows me to stay connected with my colleagues and to be part of the at-large physician community.
I think the most helpful SFMS member resource is the SFMS website. It's an excellent source of information and I am looking forward to participate in different seminars and workshops.
My greatest achievement outside of practicing medicine is still to be determined. I have done many things in my life, but so far nothing feels like a great achievement. It must be still ahead of me.
What are some of the biggest opportunities or challenges you see in health care within the next five years?
One of the biggest challenges is containing and possibly reducing the rising health care cost while keeping the same quality of care we have now. Some of us do not realize how high the standard of patient care in this country is. If we chose the socialized medicine this will change.
I love practicing Family Medicine because it allows me to make a difference in someone's life. In primary care, every day is different and challenging. You constantly learn and fine-tune your skills with the diverse patient population.
What is your favorite restaurant in San Francisco?
Tony’s Pizza Napolitana in North Beach has great pizza. Their classic Margarita is as good as the pizza in Rome.
If I wasn't a physician, I would like to be an automobile designer. My father believed I should be a mechanical engineer because many times I dismantled my toys to figure out how they worked. Like most boys, I was fascinated with cars and I still feel that way.
