A Perfect Balance: My Practice, My Family, and My Commitment to Patients


Finding a comfortable and happy work-life balance is something many of us consider as we navigate through our lives. This balance isn’t always easy to achieve, but when it is, both career and home life benefit. At our practice, La Jolla Skin, we’re able to work together to better serve our patients while still finding time to focus on our families and careers. I’m happy to say that I’ve found this balance between my family, career, and my drive to serve my patients. I want to take this time to share with you a little more about the 3 most important aspects of my life.

My Family

I love being able to work hand-in-hand with my wife, Dr. Stuart. We are partners in both business and life, which adds another level of joy and passion to the work I do here at our practice. We both believe that beautiful faces and bodies should be complemented by beautiful skin. Her extensive experience as a dermatologist works in harmony with my career as a plastic surgeon, allowing our teamwork and our like-minded approach to aesthetics help patients achieve enhanced results. Outside of the practice, we have 6 kids who keep us very busy and always having fun. We love enjoying the beautiful weather and surroundings that La Jolla has to offer.

My Career

It’s not uncommon for plastic surgeons to work closely with dermatologists. The combination of plastic surgery and dermatology creates the ideal appearance for patients. We’re proud to offer patients the best of these 2 worlds at La Jolla Skin, where patients can be treated for multiple concerns in a single location. Plus, Dr. Stuart and I discuss each patient’s case together so we can provide patients with the best combination of treatments customized to their unique needs and help them achieve their goals. You won’t find this teamwork in many other practices.

My Commitment to Patients

While operating a plastic surgery practice is wonderful, I find it equally joyous to have patients who are kind, interesting, and inspiring. Every day I get to meet with people of diverse backgrounds and unique life paths who are striving to be their best selves both mentally and physically. It’s a pleasure to be able to assist my patients in achieving their goals and helping them find a renewed confidence in themselves. My patients make me excited to come to work and provide the best service, highest standards of safety, and most outstanding, natural-looking results possible.

With this blog, I’ll share tidbits about my life and career, but mostly discuss my third point – my passion and commitment to serving my patients. My goal is to keep you informed on new trends in plastic surgery and updated on the latest technologies in aesthetic treatments, and dive into the options available at our practice from CoolSculpting® to rhinoplasty and everything in between!

In the meantime, I want you to know that I love hearing from my patients and have answered some of your questions on my website. I invite you to read my interview and get to know me and the other wonderful staff members at my practice.
