I have practiced plastic surgery at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation for my entire career; and have really been a member of the PAMF community for my entire life. My dad practiced plastic surgery at "The Clinic" as it was then called, since the year I was born. Over the years, I became more and more involved in the administrative affairs of PAMF, ultimately scaling my clinical practice to just cosmetic surgery, and becoming the President of the Palo Alto Division. After our kids left home to start their adult lives, Carrie and I moved to a farm in the Santa Cruz Mountains. It was there, sitting on my tractor mowing 7 acres of grass and weeds every couple of weeks, that I started to think long and hard about my professional life and what I wanted from it. I realized that taking care of patients was the main reason I became a doctor. I love to operate. I love to work in partnership with my patients to get them the results they seek in an environment that has our relationship at its core. Practicing in a large medical group has many advantages, it also has down sides. For me, the subtle separation between me and my patients that being a member of a large medical group required is what ultimately lead to my decision to join a small practice. The doctors at PAMF are truly world class and I will miss working with them every day, but I believe that going into practice with Dr. Vincent LePore, a pillar in the Bay Area plastic surgery community, will give me the autonomy to really focus on my patients and to continue to build partnerships and friendships with them that will make their entire experience the absolute best it can be.
I will begin my new full-service cosmetic practice as soon as the Shelter in Place directive is lifted by Santa Clara County, and when I feel that coming to the office will not present a risk to my patients, their families or the community. In the interim, you may book a free initial consultation with me via Zoom. This should save you time getting your chosen procedure done once the Shelter in Place directive is lifted.
You may also call the office for an in-person appointment.
