“Asthma and allergies significantly impact the lives of those who suffer from them. Yet, with the right treatment, they can live healthy, active lives. I went into this field to make a difference in the lives of those who suffer from these disorders. The considerable impairment of these diseases to health and quality of life should not be discounted – and the expertise of an allergist can make all the difference.
“My dedication to improving patient care includes understanding the environmental factors that influence asthma and allergies. I am the Principal Investigator on many research projects, including from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) and have published in numerous scientific journals.
“I am very understanding and patient. I recognize the importance of treating the person, not just the disease. People need to feel comfortable enough with their treatment plan and their physician to ask questions. The more a patient understands about their care, the happier and healthier they will be.”
