My life has been underscored by a committment to become the best physician that I can be.  I have followed both my fascination with the study of the human body as well as my joy in helping others to be the best that they can be.

My patients are not just clients.  A relationship between a surgeon and a patient is a partnerhsip that is forged in trust and honest communication for the purpose of enriching the life of the patient.  I listen thoughtfully, commit myself to understanding what my patients want, and then I commit myself to making that happen.

I am assisted in my goals by Gudrun Watson, R.N., a seasoned and experienced San Diego plastic surgery nurse who is equally committed to patient satisfaction, along with an office staff that is highly trained and motivated.  We are always ready to assist you and ensure that you are comfortable and content with your care. 

I sincerely hope that you will give me the opportunity to serve you. 

Monday - Friday      8 AM  to   5 PM
