After graduating from UHS, I went to UCLA where I received my Bachelor of Science degree with honors in Physiologic Science. I followed that with medical school in Upstate New York at the Upstate Medical University where I also graduated with honors. My internship was in internal medicine at the St. Luke-Roosevelt Hospital Center (part of Columbia University) and ophthalmology residency at the world famous New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, in Manhattan. I served as the chief resident during my final year. The whirlwind training took me back to southern California for my fellowship at the Doheny Eye Institute. I now practice in San Francisco with my father and teach medical students and residents at UCSF and CPMC.
Why he chose this profession:
I decided to go into medicine because it was a field that combined my love of science and joy of interacting with people. This was only made better by the fact that your job is always to help! Website.
