Danville Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeon

Welcome to my practice. I am certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and have been specializing in cosmetic plastic surgery in Contra Costa County for 32 years. I came here after spending four years in medical school and six years in plastic surgery residency at Stanford University. I became a plastic surgeon, because I am passionate about using my artistic sense and surgical skills to enhance my patients’ bodies. Over the years, I have developed some innovative surgical techniques, and use the most effective surgical procedures and technologies for my patients.

Your happiness is my top priority. I want you to feel better about yourself and to have increased self-confidence. My objective is to match the person my patients see in their mind with the one they see in the mirror. One thing that makes my practice special is that I perform all medical care myself. I do not delegate to assistants or associates. My patients can contact me 24 hours a day/ seven days a week. When patients come to my office, they can expect to be treated as a guest and as an individual. They will not be kept waiting to see me.

I like to work together with my patients to refine their goals and to define optimal treatments to accomplish these goals. We have a partnership to achieve excellence.

The important thing is to provide amazing results. As a testimonial to the quality of my results, most of my new patients are referred by previous patients. In addition, I am delighted that so many of my patients return for ongoing care.

I am a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and the California Society of Plastic Surgeons. I was chairman of the Division of Plastic Surgery of the San Ramon Regional Medical Center. In my spare time, I enjoy making ceramics, fusing glass, spending time with my family, doing international volunteering projects, cooking and exercising. I look forward to caring for you.
