This practice was born from the desire to create a space that allows for personalized treatment, relationship and ease. I myself have experienced having the same family practitioner for many years and I would like to provide this stability for my patients.
I strive to know my patient's health needs and concepts and am happy to have the flexibility to tailor the treatment plan. This can range from frequent online check in's and web based data exchange to in person office visits and assessments and group visits for patients with similar struggles for comfort and motivation.
I count myself fortunate to having obtained my medical training in the worlds best health care systems, here and in Switzerland. I have been able to practice in rural and urban settings, in distinct cultural surroundings and treating adults in all wakes of life over the last 16 years. After pursuing a masters in ancient languages, I decided that my interest in science and humanism would best be served by becoming a physician. I graduated from Medical School at the University of Berne, Switzerland and Certified in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology in Switzerland. I worked in clinical research in bone metabolic diseases and in clinical care, prior to relocating to the US. I re certified at UCLA and UCSD and feel privileged to serve the community of San Diego since 2017.
