About

Welcome.

I am a physician, a family medicine specialist with a focus on total health, diversity, and Washington, DC.

In 2007, I decided to relocate to our nation’s capital, from Seattle, Washington, to further my interests while continuing to live in the future. I believe in open leadership, sharing, and freedom from conflict of interest.

More detail, including my official bio, is on the Portfolio page.

It’s glass 3/4 full. Always and in all ways.

Comments always welcome. Feel free to connect via social media, links below.

Photo Friday: Rainbow Flags at LGBTQ Pride, Baltimore, MD USA

This week’s photo is an easy choice. It’s a rainbow pride flag flying over Charles Street, Baltimore, MD, USA for 2017 Baltimore Pride. Nothing says visibility like a rainbow flag. Plenty of transgender pride flags as well, many many more than this same event 4 years ago. The world is learning to love better. Rest …

Finding LGBTQ Material at the @NMAAHC - a helpful twitter dialogue

  • Finishing Tools of Titans – back in rotation at my local library 🙂
  • Reading Mistreated by Robert Pearl, MD. I feel if people want to know the solution to what ails health care in this country, it’s best to hear from the experience of the leaders who’ve made the most progress. It’s clear that Kasier Permanente and the Permanente Medical Groups have made the most progress. Robert Pearl, MD (@RobertPearlMD) is the CEO of The Permanente Medical Group, The Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group (@MAPermanente), and the Co-CEO of The Permanente Federation (@PermanenteDocs)
  • Working on a special emoji project for a friend…
  • Getting ready for the rest of LGBTQ Pride Month, including Washington, DC’s Equality March 2017 (@EqualityMarch17). I recently met the organizers and I’m impressed with the potential of the return to the roots of the most successful civil rights movements of our time.

Is there anything I should be doing that I’m not? Feel free to let me know in the comments.
