Department of
Internal Medicine at Highland Hospital
A member of Alameda Health System


Welcome to Highland

I joined the Department of Medicine at Highland Hospital because of its strong mission to eliminate health disparities and to provide the highest quality patient care. Medical education is at the core of this mission as we are committed to training top-notch, compassionate and caring physicians.  We serve a diverse group of patients from an array of cultural backgrounds with the goal of optimizing access to care and service to our community.  

Our amazing faculty’s steadfast commitment to medical education and academic pursuits, our extremely talented and dedicated residents and the unparalleled clinical training make Highland Hospital and Alameda Health System a truly special place, one I was proud to join and now thrilled to call home. Please come and explore what we have to offer.
