It has been my great joy and privilege to serve the health care needs of children in the Inglewood area for the last 20 years. I have especially enjoyed watching children grow from babies to young adults, and even seeing them have their own babies.
As for me, I grew up in New Jersey (the same hometown as Annie Oakley and Martha Stewart) and went to college in New England. I came to Los Angeles 45 years ago for medical school and California's great mountains and beaches.
My own kids are grown now, but for many years I was an assistant scoutmaster for my son's Boy Scout Troop and helped with many outdoor adventure hikes. I have also done many Girl Scout activities with my wife and daughter. My pediatric experience came in handy in teaching first aid and survival skills to my own children and others. In addition to work and my family, a majority of my spare time is spent in local community organizations.
Working for Central Neighborhood Health Foundation is especially rewarding because the non-profit side allows me to help the patients I love without worrying about the business end of things. Child development, asthma, and allergy are areas to which I especially have devoted my medical practice. But, I have also spearheaded improving our electronic medical records to more quickly access all your health information.
I have worked in many hospitals around Los Angeles, but all my time now is spent caring for patients at CNHF. Our wonderful staff has been here for years and has developed real friendships with our parents and their kids. These families keep us going and keep us young. We have been able to help our patients’ many complex problems, provide all-around care, refer them to a great group of specialists, and help guide them through our country's complex medical system. At the same time, these families have been our teachers too, and we have learned a great deal from them.
