Physician Assistant

Experienced/ Compassionate/ Team Player

I am a Senior Physician Assistant with more than 20 years of cardiovascular related experience in large federal and in private sector healthcare systems. Currently I am a primary care provider for the Department of Veterans Affairs, GS 13-9, where I manage a panel of 1,200 patients. My career has afforded me the opportunity to do many wonderful and interesting things. More recently I have been manning the New England Call center for patients with possible COVID 19 symptoms, testing and follow-up. I have extensive hospital and clinical experience in all aspects of primary care, general cardiology and emergency medicine. In addition, I am a veteran of the US Navy, Submarine Service. I am moving my family to San Diego, licensed in California to practice and am greatly interested in this position.
