About Me:

"I am a former chairman and professor of podiatric surgery at the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine (now Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine) and former president of the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. I have been a major partner of the San Diego podiatry group since 1983. I have been assistant professor in the department of orthopedics at UCSD and podiatric residency director since 1984 (1st at Hillside hospital and now at Scripps Mercy Hospital.) I am board certified in podiatric surgery as well as podiatric biomechanics. My interests are in foot mechanics, pediatric foot care (children and infants), podiatric surgery, and general podiatric care. I am detailed oriented and will try to answer all of your questions. I enjoy working with patients and I treat patients how I would like to be treated."
