About Me

I'm a practicing geriatrician in San Francisco with a particular interest in helping family caregivers. I have a small solo housecalls and geriatrics consultation practice.

I also have a background in public health and quality improvement, and have a long-standing interest in improving primary care for the community-dwelling elderly. My scholarly research has been published in JAMA and the Journal for Medical Internet Research. I completed residency, clinical fellowship, and research fellowship at UCSF, and am currently a Clinical Instructor in the Division of Geriatrics at UCSF.

I'm especially intrigued by tech innovations that can be used by in-the-trenches healthcare providers, and by elders and their families.
