What I do

My primary area is the clinical care of patients with hepatitis C infection, HIV, and chronic illnesses, including high blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid issues, 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 for the Federal Board of Prisons and for healthcare providers caring for HIV and HCV infected patients, including pregnant women and their newborns. My practice sites include the Family Health Center located at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and the UCSF Liver Transplant Clinic. I also teach in the doctor of pharmacy degree curriculum and the Family Medicine program and conduct research in the aforementioned areas.
