Hello there. I’m a psychiatrist and addiction medicine physician, with a private practice in downtown Los Altos, California. I teach in the Stanford University School of Medicine, where my title is Clinical Assistant Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. I worked part-time for eleven years at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System, where I co-founded the buprenorphine clinic, treating opiate dependence and other substance disorders in veterans. In 2019 I left my VA position and took a new one just up the road, at the Camden Center in Menlo Park, again working as a psychiatrist and substance abuse physician; I stayed there until the IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program) moved from Menlo Park to San Francisco. I am currently just working in private practice, and I still teach at Stanford, in the med school.
This simple website represents my private practice. I can also be found via Psychology Today.
I was initially board-certified by the American College of Psychiatry and Neurology in 2003, then by the American Society of Addiction Medicine in 2014, and most recently I re-boarded again in Addiction Medicine in 2021 (through 2030).
