"After completing my training in Pediatric Nephrology at Babies Hospital Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center NY, I was a faculty member at UC Davis Medical Center for 2 years before moving to Southern California. I have been in practice in Southern California for 27 years caring for babies and children with both congenital and acquired diseases of the kidneys and urinary tract. I believe in the parent's participation in their children's care and advocating for children with diseases that impact their life. Services that I am able to provide are both diagnostic and therapeutic including kidney biopsy, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis for children and young adults up to age 21. The scope of diseases that I specialize in but not limited to are congenital renal diseases such as multicystic kidney, reflux as well as acquired diseases such as nephritis, hematuria, proteinuria, nephrotic syndrome, lupus and hypertension. I am especially interested in renal complications of diabetes in children and young adults. I believe that because I have practiced in the community for so long that I am able to access the best care for my patients uitilizing resources not only in the hopitals where I practice but in the greater area of Southern California."
