My Biography

Welcome to my home page! First I'll tell you a bit about my training as a physician scientist and my work here at Kaiser Permanente, then a bit about me as a person. I was born in New York City, spent a mobile childhood growing up in Manhattan, Providence, Rhode Island, Rochester, New York and ended up going to Evanston Township High School on the North side of Chicago. I received a Masters degree from the New School for Social Research in New York City. With all that education in hand (papers on the wall!) I spent 8 years doing medical research studying hormone effects on disease before starting medical school. I also completed a Masters Degree in Public Health. After Residency training, I moved to California.

I also was one of the first physicians to receive accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Gynecologic Endoscopy.

I am a referral-only sub-specialist in the diagnosis and management of infertility and reproductive endocrinology. I have dedicated my professional life to studies of various aspects of reproductive biology with special interests in addressing in vitro fertilization, implantation biology, polycystic ovarian syndrome and reproductive aging. I am actively involved in many clinical and laboratory research studies, some within Kaiser Permanente, some in conjunction with the University of California, San Francisco where I am on the clinical faculty, and some with the NIH (National Institutes of Health). I make it a point to each year present results of some aspect of our team's research at some national meeting.

I participate in a group of similarly well trained and dedicated reproductive endocrinologists in Kaiser Medical Centers distributed throughout the Northern California Region. We are all interested in providing the highest level of knowledge and quality care to address patient questions and concerns. Our area of infertility care can be quite challenging with more folks attempting to get pregnant at later stages of life. We all wish we could do more to stretch the boundaries of success. We are all trained in providing the full range of infertility services including insemination, ovulation induction with oral and injectable medications and can provide in vitro fertilization related services with one's own or with donor eggs. The choice of any particular intervention, of course, is determined both by medical appropriateness as well as policy benefits.

At home, I enjoy reading (Nobel, Pulitzer, Nebulla and Hugo award-winning books), playing with our Apple Macs (we've got 4 of them on a wireless network), and sharing sports, cooking, and gardening activities with my family. Naughty delights include all things chocolate, tea, French wine and Cuban cigars, all, of course, in moderation. (Am I allowed to say that?)

Having worked in half a dozen medical centers nationally, I can easily say that there is no better care for any patient than that provided by Kaiser Permanente and its team of dedicated and well-trained providers. The work environment is professional, ethnically diverse and focused on providing the best care for our patients. I am proud to be member of this excellent team. My view may be shaded by living in one of the best places to live in the United States. San Francisco offers such rich international experiences in conjunction with the latest of technology. Having grown up in New York and Chicago, San Francisco seems like a large village. I almost wish I had never heard of cholesterol or exercise and could just indulge without concern in everything that living in this area has to offer.

If you think you have a MEDICAL OR PSYCHIATRIC EMERGENCY, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY or go to the nearest hospital. DO NOT attempt to access emergency care through this web site. An emergency medical condition is a medical or psychiatric condition that manifests itself by acute symptoms of sufficient severity (including severe pain) such that you could reasonably expect the absence of immediate medical attention to result in any of the following: serious jeopardy to your health, serious impairment to your bodily functions, or serious dysfunction of any bodily organ or part. An emergency medical condition is also "active labor," which means a labor when there is inadequate time for safe transfer to a Plan hospital (or designated hospital) before delivery or if a transfer poses a threat to the health of the member or unborn child.
