About My Practice
I consider it a great privilege to serve the medical needs of the most important people in your lives, your precious children. As a pediatrician, I especially enjoy the honest (often adorable) interactions with my young patients. And especially meaningful are the deep and great relationships that develop through the years. I have served SLO county children for over 23 years and am now seeing some of my first patients starting their own families!
My goal is to get to know and understand the uniqueness of each child. I strive to affirm, support and empower families as they travel through this marvelous (and yes, sometimes nerve wracking) experience called parenting. I believe that open, honest, non judgmental communication is critical to good medical care and I work hard to achieve that. I am so blessed to have the most awesome families in my practice.
On a Personal Note
Although born in South Florida, my parents had the foresight and wisdom to raise me in sunny southern California. I was raised in Bell, went to a small Christian College ( Point Loma Nazarene University), attended medical school at UC San Francisco and did my internship and residency in general pediatrics at Stanford University Medical Center. I decided to start practice in SLO county right out of residency arriving here in 1986, with my 2 small sons. I now boast 5 boys and 2 wonderful daughters in law. Grandparenting is the next step in this adventure.
I have been married to my wonderful wife for almost 30 years, and have continued to be in awe of this wild adventure called life. It’s the boldness of life’s experiences that assist in empathizing and assisting me in striving to help each individual family in this great practice. I am also very fortunate to have a marvelous capable associate in Dr. Szytel, who shares my vision for the highest quality care and empathy possible.
Please feel free to call with any questions. To those who I have had the privilege of serving, thank you for the opportunity to be part of your adventure! And for those who are just starting out, I look forward to getting to know you and your child!
