I am a primary care general internist and addiction medicine provider at Highland Hospital in Oakland, California. I currently serve as the Division Chief of Primary Care at Highland Hospital and the Site Director of the UCSF Primary Care Addiction Medicine Fellowship at Alameda Health System. I am passionate about improving primary care for underserved communities, expanding access to care for substance use disorders, and integrating addiction services into primary care.
I am an active member of the California Society of Addiction Medicine (CSAM) and serve on the Integration and Access to Systems of Care Committee. Within CSAM, my focus is on primary care integration of substance use services, as well as the promotion of diversity and equity within CSAM and in the care of people with substance use disorders.
