I am a board certified, practicing, academic endocrinologist at a university medical system. Diabetes is the largest part of my endocrine practice. I treat diabetes both in clinic and in hospitalized patients.
I am an endocrinologist on the faculty of the University of California, Irvine. I treat adult patients and work in both outpatient and, as a consultant, in inpatient settings. In my general endocrinology practice, I treat mainly diabetes and thyroid diseases, along with pituitary, adrenal and other less common endocrine problems.
