Welcome to my private medical practice website

I am board-certified in internal medicine and clinical immunology and allergy. I also teach medical students an an Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. I see all of my patients and do not utilize PA’s or nurse practitioners. In April, 2014, my medical practice moved to Suite 401 at 5901 West Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles 90036. I share an office with three other physicians, Dr. Phillip Musikanth, Dr. Peter Ruane, and Dr. Peter Wolfe. Our office is state-of-the art and our staff is exceptional. We strive to deliver superb care and service.

A bit about my background. I graduated from Rutgers University and the University of Rochester School of Medicine. In my practice I provide primary care as well as specialty care for patients with HIV, hepatitis, sexually transmitted infections, allergies and asthma. I have admitting privileges at Cedars Sinai Medical Center and Olympia Medical Center in Los Angeles.

I studied immunology at Stanford, and in 1981 wrote some of the first articles identifying AIDS as a new disease. Some of the highlights of my bio are listed in the links and media sections of this website. My early involvement is chronicled in And the Band Played On by the late Randy Shilts. I am currently Medical Advisor to the Trustees of the Global AIDS Interfaith Alliance (GAIA) which does HIV/AIDS relief in the villages of Malawi, Africa. More about GAIA’s work in Malawi can be found at http://www.thegaia.org. I am also an advisor to the board of the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.
