What I do
My primary focus is on patients with chronic illnesses which may include any of the following: high blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid issues, HIV, hepatitis C infection, patients on blood thinners and those who have difficulty with medication side effects or medication adherence (taking their medications). At the National HIV/AIDS Consultation Center, I provide clinical consultations via telephone to healthcare providers caring for HIV and HCV infected patients. I also have practice sites in the Family Health Center located at San Francisco General Hospital and at the UCSF Liver Transplant Clinic.
