He is also currently the Medical Co-Director of the wound care service at Tri-City and the Tri-City Hyperbaric and wound clinic where the majority of his patients are geriatric.

“I joined Silver Oak as Medical Director because I believe in the mission of providing benefits not found in other North County assisted living facilities. At Silver Oak, we are very progressive about elder care. We work closely with our residents, their families and primary care physicians to help residents navigate the challenging issues of aging and provide a safe, comfortable, healthy and fun place to live a meaningful and joyful life in the tradition of compassion and excellence that is standard at Silver Oak. We treat residents as we would our family. Caregiving is our passion.”
