New Practice Update!

It's been a lot of hard work, and there's just under two months until my new practice is open for business, January 2, 2018.

I have secured a fantastic location -- the Wall Street Building in Tarzana,  Kravings restaurant is on the first floor, and there's a large Whole Foods Market across the street.
18663 Ventura Blvd, Tarzana

Now, I'm focused on the many details of my new medical practice.  There's more to this than I had imagined -- credentialing with insurers, setting up wifi, computers, and phones, choosing an electronic medical record, hiring employees, buying equipment and furniture -- these are just a few of the tasks that I've had to take on.

But for me, the hardest part has been having to tell my patients that I'm leaving.  I know some will follow me, and I'm so grateful for that, but others cannot, whether it be distance from home, or insurance.  I've been with some of my patients for nearly nine years, and those office visits feel like meetings with old friends.

Stay tuned here for more details about my new practice!!
